Tamas, have you loaded/enable ESS  at all in your  init.el file?
e.g., does
      M-x R
call R?
ess-noweb I think is supposed to be called in to a `loaded' ESS

(but then I'm only rarely using Xemacs, but rather GNU emacs and
I also don't know about the Debian package setup of these).

    Tamas> so it should be working correctly. One strange thing: immediately
