To me it usually does, both on Linux and Windows (NTemacs).  It's done
that as long as I can remember.  I just did a few tests, and it seems
that whenever I am in a buffer that is not an iESS buffer, the buffer
remains visible in a window; either the iESS buffer is shown in one of
the other windows in the frame, or a new window is created for it.

(Note that I think that's a perfectly OK behaviour of ESS. :-)

I have just followed the instructions contained in the ESS distribution.
