re: ESS 5.1.20, GNU Emacs 20.5.2, S-PLUS 6.0.1 Rel 1, IRIX64 6.5.

Greetings all ---

If I do M-x S in a dired window on ~/S/work then I get the correct prompt
  ESS [S(S+6): Splus6] starting data directory? ~/S/work/
I press enter and then S-PLUS starts with
  Creating data directory for chapter /vld/collins/Schapter1174419
which it does:
  > search()[1]
  [1] "/vld/collins/Schapter1174419"

Quit and start over.  If I open a file in the said directory and then do
M-x S in the file I get the usual prompt, and then S-PLUS starts correctly.
  > search()[1]
  [1] "/vld/collins/S/work/"

If I start in a dired window and change the start directory
from the default at the prompt, behavior is correct.

This happens on two such machines.  ESS 5.1.19 is OK.

Furthermore, if I alter the Splus6 script to read
  for dir in $HOME/MySwork $HOME/Szzzchapter$$
instead of
  for dir in $HOME/MySwork $HOME/Schapter$$
I still get the above behavior (NO zzz).

I am stymied.
