ESS 5.2.1: ess-toolbar, buffer process issue

I am running under Mac OS 10.3.4, working from the command line in an 
x11 terminal window (emacs  I am using the R1.9.0 image 
from CRAN.  In order to get ESS to work I had to disable (load 
'ess-toolbar); maybe that is not unexpected?  The first part of the 
output from the debugger was:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" 
   find-image(((:type xpm :file "startr.xpm") (:type pbm :file 
"startr.pbm" :fore
ground "black" :background "grey75") (:type xbm :file "startr.xbm" 
:foreground "
black" :background "grey75")))

A minor annoyance is that when I type C-cC-q to exit, having done 
nothing much more than execute 1+1, if I then answer "y" to the 
question "Delete all buffers associated with the R process", I get 
either the message "Current buffer has no process", or (having exited 
by typing in q() directly and restarted with M-X R)  "Matches 
/Users/johnmq(... [1-]" or some extension thereof.  (This is also the 
5.2.0 behaviour.  I had been using 5.2.0rc3).

If I respond with "n", I am able to exit normally.
