[ESS] Warning about Emacs/ESS administration and Windows 7 Weirdness

hi Rich,

Our dept has recently set up a windows server, so that I can use
'rdesktop' from my linux machine to remotely login.  When I start
Rgui on windows, and do

> getwd()

it tells me :
  "C:/Program Files/q/R-2.11.1/bin"

Do I just need to manually set ess-rterm-version-paths ?

Also, is there a nice R command that tells me the directory in which I
can find Rterm.exe?   

... and then I'm thinking of whether we can get R to include a default
function, say ess.find.rterm() that could automatically generate the
lisp code that a user would need to stick in their ~/.emacs so that that
version of R is found by a fresh emacs.
