Should be possible, but there's a bug somewhere that we'll need your
help tracking down.  Do as the info pages for ESS suggest:

   If Emacs reports an error, backtraces can help us debug the problem.
Type "M-x set-variable RET debug-on-error RET t RET".  Then run the
command that causes the error and you should see a *Backtrace* buffer
containing debug information; send us that buffer.

Also, does the text "xemacs-flag" occur in your .emacs?
