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.
