This is the expected behavior - you are not using X11, so the default  
device is the PostScript device.

What is "Aqua plot"? I fear you don't have much of a choice - if I  
recall correctly X11 is the only stock interactive device that works  
in ESS. Jan de Leeuw posed some hints as of how you can try patch R  
to get Quartz to respond in some circumstances, but I don't know if  
that works with your Emacs (there are many variations of Emacs for OS  
X) - you may want to have a look at the archives.
