Thanks to Tony Rossini and Jeff Mincy for their help on my question about
"defadvice".  The problem is now gone.

[The way I resolved it is *very* simple:  I un-install XEmacs from the G:
drive and re-install it on the C: drive.  The problem just disappear.  Go
figure that!]

Now I have a new problem:  When I type ?<anything> at the R prompt under
iESS, the help page doesn't show up.  Instead, I get a message in the
mini-buffer that says "ESS process not ready.  Finish your command before
trying again".  Typing help("plot") gives the same thing.  Can anyone help?

BTW, the c-c c-q for R now works perfectly on NT.  Thanks very much for the
