A while ago I posted the message:

> I am not getting ESS to work (as a regular user).  I am running XEmacs v. 21.1
> on a SuSE 6.3 Linux PC. (...) When I start Xemacs and do M-x R, I get
"Process R is not running" (...) However, everything works OK if I am root. 

It turns out the problem was related to the pty permissions being too 
restrictive in suse; see the article


Once I fixed it, everything worked OK.
