You don't say which version of emacs you are running. I am on
"GNU Emacs 24.1.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin, NS apple-appkit-1038.36) of
2012-06-10 on bob.porkrind.org"
I have had other issues but not the one you seem to be getting.
I would try using the emacs package manager (although I think ess came
bundled with my current emacs).
Further, I installed a new emacs about 4 weeks ago which I haven't
used much. I just now used the package manager with it to install
ess. The new version looks really good. You probably don't need to
live quite so dangerously though.
"GNU Emacs 184.108.40.206 (x86_64-apple-darwin13.0.0, NS
apple-appkit-1265.00) of 2014-03-02 on Dominics-MacBook-Pro.local"
