hi Dan,

This is a new feature added in ESS. 5.2.0

add the following to .emacs and restart emacs:
(setq inferior-ess-own-frame t)

That should work (but strangely doesn't for me right now on Emacs
21.3.50, will check out later.)

   * ESS: Support for creating new window frames has been added to ESS.
     Inferior ESS processes can be created in dedicated frames by
     setting inferior-ess-own-frame to t.  ESS help buffers can also
     open in new frames; see the documentation for ess-help-own-frame
     for details.  (Thanks to Kevin Rodgers for contributing code.)
