Ok, something is not working.  Do you see "R-1.9.1-my" in the "ESS ->
Start Process -> Other" menu?  (Check that R-1.9.1-my is executable
from the command line on its own, i.e. executable bit set).

If you can't do M-x R-1.9.1-my from the command line, it won't work
with the -f switch from the command line.  I just tried the following,
which worked:

R-1.9.1q has:
R -q
