I notice this in my .emacs file:

  '(inferior-ess-dump-command "dump(\"%s\",file=\"%s\", 
'(ess-source-directory "./.tmp")
  '(load-home-init-file t t))

IIRC, that was to remove the "source(" from the beginning (and of course 
the ")" from the end of what is dumped into the buffer.

That evidently explains the difference, but it doesn't tell us how to 
get it back to how it worked years ago.
