Dear All,

I just upgraded a bunch of emacs packages (including ESS) and now company
is not working well with R.

With the latest tar.gz (ess-version: 16.04 [Released git: cccb9481389b])
and with the latest from elpa (ess-version: 16.04 [elpa: 20160602.203])
when I start typing, say, "runi" (to get runif as possible completion)

I get the errors:

Company: An error occurred in auto-begin

Company: Back-end (company-R-args company-R-objects :sorted) error
"Symbol's function definition is void: :sorted" with args (ignore-case)

If I then try "?" at the R prompt, I get the error

Symbol's function definition is void: :sorted

If I install (from melpa-stable) v. 15.9 none of those issues arise.

I reinstalled company (even if I've had the same 0.8.12 for the last few
months), but nothing changes. Note that company seems to be working fine in
C++ and text buffers.
