Thank you, Gerard.

Fortunately, Stephen Eglen (in ESS-core) also uses "pretesting
Emacs 22", found the problem and proposed a patch that works for
pretesting emacs 22:

For this reason, the lines

;; only needed in Emacs >= 22.x and newish Xemacsen:
(unless (boundp 'c-emacs-features)
  (require 'cc-vars));; for syntax-table

had been added to ess/lisp/essl-sta.el  a while ago.

BTW, you can always get the current development version of ESS
or  https://svn.R-project.org/ESS/trunk/lisp/ for the emacs lisp files


Regards, Martin
