[ESS] Emacs sends > to R console (causing error)

I've got the following modifications in my .emacs file which allow me to
open a .R file, press shift+enter and get an R prompt. It works but
apparently ">" gets send to the console; I get the following error message:
> > 
Error: Unexpected '>' in ">"

after that I can enter R commands just fine. I can't figure out what's
causing this so any help would be appreciated! 

(autoload 'R-mode "ess-site.el" "" t)
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.R\\'" . R-mode))

      (define-key comint-mode-map [up]
      (define-key comint-mode-map [down]

      ;; also recommended for ESS use --
      (setq comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output 'others)
      (setq comint-scroll-show-maximum-output t)
