[ESS] File mode specification error

When opening a .Rnw file using emacs22, things work flawlessly.
On the other hand, when using emacs22 -nw, the following error
is displayed on opening the same file:
File mode specification error: (void-function noweb-font-lock-mode)
The document opens and the modes displayed after this error message
are Fundamental Noweb. There is no appropriate font-locking and
the usual commands to interact with an R process (C-c C-n etc.)
appear not to function.
Any ideas about what might be the cause ?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. emacs 22.1.1, ess 5.3.6 on ubuntu gutsy;
no ESS-related things were put in my .emacs. The only other
snippet which might (?) be relevant is
;; turn on font lock
(cond ((fboundp 'global-font-lock-mode)
;; Turn on font-lock in all modes that support it
;; Maximum colors
(setq font-lock-maximum-decoration t)))
