[ESS] company mode troubles

One further detail:

removing the ":sorted" from

(ess-company-backends              . '((company-R-args company-R-objects :sorted))) 

in line 214 of ess-r-d.el solves this issue (though I do not know if it
might lead to other issues).

Because of my elisp ignorance, I have no idea what the ":sorted" actually
does here, but I guess my installation must be missing something that
provides the ":sorted". I do not know what it is: other company stuff I
have does not seem to use :sorted, installing company-statistics did not
help, and googling around didn't either.



P.S. My emacs version is GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+
Version 3.18.9) of 2016-04-08 on binet, modified by Debian
