Annoying hilighting with ESS and emacs 21.2.1

I've been useing ess-5.1.20 to run R1.5.1 on Linux RH7.2.  I have just
upgraded emacs to version 21.2.1.  All seems well except... when I
move the mouse pointer onto some, but not all, of the previous command
lines in the *R* buffer, the text of the line is hilighted with dark
green background, the whole thing blinks, and a bubble appears
proclaiming "Mouse-2: insert after prompt as new input".  The bubble
is lying -- it takes CR or Alt-CR to insert as new input; Mouse-2
doesn't do it.  Furthermore, the green background trumps the shading
for region and secondary selection and the location of point.  This is
quite annoying.  Please... is there some way to turn off the
hilighting, the blinking and the bubble?

    Cheers, Pierre
