two things for me (I guess they are the same as for several others):
1) ss does nothing, in fact, I get a message saying that "s s is undefined".
2) If I move down manually to summary.lm and press h I get the message "Help on:"
For the follow up questions I have (similar to Frede):
1) 'C-h v major-mode <Enter>' gives
major-mode's value is ess-help-mode
Local in buffer *help[R](lm)*; global value is fundamental-mode
Automatically becomes buffer-local when set in any fashion.
Symbol for current buffer's major mode.
Defined in `C source code'.
2) 's C-h' gives
Major Mode Bindings Starting With s:
s < beginning-of-buffer
s > end-of-buffer
s ? ess-describe-sec-map
Global Bindings Starting With s:

Can we first be sure about what happens when:
Here are detailed instructions (please, other "listeners" try them too!):
1) After starting R (M-x R),
2) inside *R* buffer type
C-c C-v lm <Enter>
you should now be inside a newly created buffer
= [S]kip to the "[S]ee also" section in the help buffer
(advance two lines: "the cursor" (the "point" in Emacs-lingo)
should now be somewhere on the word 'summary.lm')
(in the minibuffer, you should be prompted with
"Help on: (default summary.lm) "
-> the help page for summary.lm opens in yet
another new buffer.
- Can you tell exactly where the above differs for you?
- Could you also try with a non-alpha version of Emacs, i.e.
Emacs 21.3 or 21.4 ?
