submitting a region hangs emacs

I do that type of thing all the time on the same setup.
I have never seen that behavior.

Are you using the S-Plus GUI?  Are you using Sqpe in the emacs buffer?
I assume you are using NTemacs, is that a correct assumption.

The next very important thing to check is, is this even related to
emacs?  Since you said you get the error when you cut and paste to S_Plus,
please open up wordpad, put those three lines

dframe <- data.frame(x=1:10,y=rnorm(10))
dframe <- data.frame(x=1:10,

in the wordpad, then pick them up from wordpad with the mouse and
drop them into S-Plus.  My guess is that you will see the same freeze,
demonstrating that the problem is neither an emacs nor an ESS problem.

If it indeed an S-Plus problem, then check it out with a new empty
S-Plus .Data directory.  Your .Prefs may have become corrupted.  The fix is
to delete all files in the .Prefs directory and let S-Plus repopulate it.
