If I run R in a terminal window and issue a help.start(), help(command)
opens a browser window with the help file displayed properly.`

If I run R under ESS in Xemacs and issue a help.start(), a browser window is
opened but help(command) displays the help in an Xemacs buffer.

I'm running R version 1.8.1 and Xemacs 21.4.12-6 on a Redhat Linux 9 box. I
just updated the ESS package from yesterday in hopes that that
might fix the problem; it didn't. 

Any suggestions as to how to fix this? Thanks.
