hi Andreas,

This issue appeared a few weeks ago; It is both an Emacs CVS bug and
something in ESS.  

1. Emacs in CVS was recently changed (maybe a couple of weeks ago) to
   fix this bug so that C-c RET works again in e.g. *shell* buffers.

2005-01-29  Richard M. Stallman  <rms at gnu.org>
	* comint.el (comint-insert-input): Undo previous changes;
	use last-input-event in interactive spec.

2. However, that fix to Emacs didn't cure the problem in ESS; this is
   something we need to look at.

Best wishes, Stephen
