[ESS] Help with Help when using ess-remote

I've been using ESS with an R running on a remote system by doing the
1. M-x shell
2. ssh MY_REMOTE_SYSTEM
4. M-x ess-remote
This works as desired, but if I do C-c C-v to get help on something,
the remote R process displays it in the R process buffer and tries to
use a pager and I get almost unreadable results.
When I'm using a local R, I have ESS configured to pop-up a new frame
with the help. This is the behavior I want. Is it possible to have
help from a remote R work this way? Is there a better way to initiate
a remote R session?
