I use Splus daily through ESS, on a setting very similar to Jim, same
version, 8.1.1 on a Linux platform as well and I don't observe this
behaviour.  C-c C-v yields "Help on:" as mentionned by Jim but when I enter
a fonction name, or part of a name and use tab for completion, I do get the
requested function's help buffer and Emacs does'nt hang.  I do get what I
think is the normal behaviour!
