that doesn't normally happen.
It only happens if you have a setup derived from John Fox'
original hints on setting up ESS+Xemacs for windows.
While these have been very useful to many people (the reason why
I had added a link to John's page on http://stat.ethz.ch/ESS/
quite a while ago), the part about misusing *scratch* was
definitely flawed. 
John Fox has since updated his page (and particularly that PDF
document) and eliminated that part about *scratch* AFAIK 
(I'm neither a Windows nor an Xemacs user).
