[ESS] Starting evaluation... hangs

I started to use ESS for direct acces to R - I copied R code before to
terminal and now decided to move to ESS. It is nice, but I constantly
experience strange hanging when evaluating the code bellow. If I use C-c
C-n it goes smoothly, but when I use C-c C-r on "data.frame" part or on
the whole code I can see the Starting evaluation... message in modeline,
but it does not end it just continues and I can not stop this with C-c C-c.

Did I misunderstood the ess-eval-region command? I highlight the code
and issue C-c C-r. Should I do anything else to define a region or ... ?


y <- rnorm(n = 160, mean = 1400, sd = 200)
s <- factor(rep(c(1, 2, 3, 4), times = 40))

tmp <- data.frame(m1 = y[1:40],
                  m2 = y[41:80],
                  m3 = y[81:120],
                  m4 = y[121:160],
                  s1 = s[1:40],
                  s2 = s[41:80],
                  s3 = s[81:120],
                  s4 = s[121:160])

R Version 2.2.1  (2005-12-20 r36812)
