Strictly speaking this has nothing to do with ESS. AC removes the popup
on user input, and if it fails, that means it is an AC/openbox
issue. You should report it on AC bug list but try to reproduce the
problem in elisp mode first.
I find quick-help annong and thus bind these keys for help-on-demand:
(define-key ac-completing-map (kbd "M-h") 'ac-quick-help)
(define-key ac-mode-map (kbd "M-H") 'ac-last-quick-help)
;; (define-key ac-mode-map (kbd "M-H") 'ac-last-help)
It might solve the issue.
I am also setting ac-quick-help-prefer-pos-tip to t, as I don't like
native "yellow" tooltips.
