Ah, apparently that's a new feature of executable-find. We'll have to
rely on an older trick and just check if ess-directory is remote:
(unless (or (file-remote-p ess-directory)
(display-warning 'ess (format "%s could not be found on the system. Try running `R-newest' instead, which searches your system for R." inferior-ess-r-program) :error)
(user-error "%s program not found" inferior-ess-r-program))
