Thanks Vitalie. Do you happen to know when this will make its way into
a release? I maintain the package for Slackware Linux and would prefer
to stick to your releases rather than particular Git revisions.

On another note, when trying to build the version from master, on
"make install", it's now hanging when building documentation:

LANG=C texi2dvi --pdf ess.texi
This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
 file:line:error style messages enabled.

top tells me that pdfetex has been running for about 10 minutes!
Possibly something wrong with the LaTeX tools on my machine, but I've
not really had a chance to look into this further. Has anyone
experienced anything like this?
