[ESS] Saving R files

I have used ESS just for editing R source code for a long time, with
great pleasure. I install and upgrade ess via apt-get on my debian system.
After the latest upgrades I can suddenly not save buffers the usual way
by C-x C-s. Nothing happens, simply. If I try to quit, C-x C-c, I get the
question if I want to save....; I answer yes and get the reply "Modified 
buffers...." It ends with me quitting, without being able to save the file.
I rename it so I can edit in non-ess mode, which is boring, but works.

Can someone tell me what is going on?
