[ESS] Issue with polymode installed from ELPA

Oh, sorry. The errors are something like "file polymode not found". So
not necessarily related to the load order. The load errors come from
the brute force method of manually loading the files in the wrong
order (which I resolved). So, I've just tested it, but I didn't get any crashes.
I will keep an eye out for crashes and let you know if I see anything.
I have tried Aquamacs, but I never liked it much. They have tried too
hard to make it Mac-like. I like Emacs to be like Emacs regardless of
platform. The exception is that I love the Apple Command keys
which allow Apple HIG Cut/Copy/Paste. Fortunately, both Aquamacs
and Vincent's Emacs support these. But, I digress.

I use Aquamacs 3.5, based on emacs 25.3, ESS 18.10.3snapshot from MELPA, OSX 10.14.16, and the following works for me.
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/Packages/lisp/")
(load "ess-autoloads") ;; need to register Rnw files
(require ‘polymode) ;; version 2.0 now
(require 'poly-R) ;;
I, too, found the order mattered, but I think it’s because poly-R depends on poly-noweb and poly-markdown, which depend on polymode.
But I am more interested in the errors you are getting. After upgrading to poly-R-2.0, I found that clicking on the menubar while an R buffer was open was crashing Aquamacs (and replicated on Emacs 26.3). I’ll start another thread once I’ve narrowed down the source of the problem some more, but I am curious if this is related.
