hi Frederik,  

This variable was introduced: 
2004-08-29  Stephen Eglen  <stephen at gnu.org>
	* ess-inf.el (ess-multi): Use inferior-ess-same-window to decide
	whether to replace or split current window.

	* ess-cust.el (inferior-ess-same-window): New variable.

and presumably only in ESS 5.2.3, released 2004-09-21.  So you need to
upgrade ESS on your Linux box and try again!
