I think ess-eval-visibly-p should remain true by default, as it is quite
useful. If you change the accept-process-output call in
ess-eval-linewise to:

    (accept-process-output sprocess 0 timeout-ms)

(the difference being that you explicitly state to wait for input from
"sprocess"), the test case works instantly also with ess-eval-visibly-p.

All the best,
