Problem with ESS on a Win98 System using R

ESS 5.0 is rather ancient (I believe we released it around the time I
left South Carolina).  Please try 5.1.19, which while not
perfect, is more perfect for the modern versions of Emacs and R that
you mention.

You shouldn't be creating .RHistory or .Data.   .Data is not required
nor needed in this case.  .RHistory would be created by Emacs/ESS, so
you should not need to create it either.
