[ESS] Weird behaviour of assignment symbols with Emacs-24.1 (and ESS 12.04-4)

PS: I forgot to mention. I am using MacOS 10.7.4
I have just now installed Vincent Goulet's latest Emacs-24.1-modified-1.dmg
for MacOS X, dated 11 June 2012.
If I type
a <- 2
into my R session, the assignment symbol promptly changes to blank space.
Once the command has been executed, the symbol reappears. This behaviour
happens whether the symbol is entered as <-, or by typing an underscore.
If I open a .R script file, the assignment symbols likewise appear as blank space.
If I copy relevant code e.g. into this email message, the assignment symbols
magically reappear. Thus, the issue seems to be one of displaying the symbol.
Has anyone else experienced this behaviour? I am guessing that something in
my .emacs file may be interacting with some feature of Emacs 24.1 to cause the
problem. Any suggestions on what I might check for?
