Hi Martin, Stephen, and David

It was at the end an xemacs rather than  ESS problem. In particular the
compiled version of comint (comint.elc) in

I downloaded the version comint.el from


and poked around a bit in it. After some hours it seems that when I
byte-compile the file it just screws it up for some reason. However, if
instead I (load-file ...) it seems to work ok.

So maybe you can add this to the installation section of ESS README file.
just do not use (require ..) and use (load-file ..) after downloading it.

I do not know why the original comint.elc is having problems. But for now
this seems like the easiest solution.
