It's an Emacs/Windows thing, that either R can fix or Emacs can fix.
1. The R folks don't have time right now,
2. we could talk to the Emacs folks,
3. it's not an ESS problem per say, but an ESS issue, since we
leverage both R and Emacs.
conclusion -- it probably won't get fixed anytime soon, until someone
does some gory debugging of Emacs and R under Windows to understand
why/how file refs are staying open. Sorry.
