This is a new feature, and is called ess-smart-comma. First it's a first
step towards  ess-smart-operators which is intended to be much smarter
and R specific than well known smart-operators package.

Second it does something more in inferior. If the first key pressed in
inferior is ","  you will get an IDO menu with plenty of handy
commands. This is inspired by SLIME.

I make a variable to deactivate the space insertion,  but may be you
should consider changing your habits?
