thanks for this.
X11() does not cause a crash (but then again, doesn't open a window)
after M-x shell I get:
[octopus:~] rksh% echo $DISPLAY
but in an ESS session I get
Error: Couldn't find per display information
Process R exited abnormally with code 1 at Thu Apr 27 11:09:21 2006
so that causes a crash too.
