[R] ESS/rterm problem

I really don't think this is an R bug; sorry if I've got it wrong twice
within a week.

Using rw0632 on NT 4.0, I can get R running quite happily under ESS
5.1.3. However, whenever I use help(), although I do get the required
help in a split screen, I also get the minibuffer error message:

wrong argument type: processp, nil

Note: I get this under ESS 5.0 as well. I could live with this, but if I
attempt to call help through the menus, or to iESS edit anything, the
whole thing hangs with

Forming completions for Autoloads ...

I've waited up to 15min which I think is long enough to be sure it won't
work. However, ESS 5.0 can cope.

My own fault for updating to a beta of ESS? Anyone else have this
