I've just installed Xemacs and ESS to run R on a Windows2000 PC, following the
instructions on John Fox's web page.  When I run Xemacs, I get the following

"(1) (initialization/error) An error has occurred while loading c:\Documents and

Invalid read syntax: "Cannot read unreadable object"

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate the cause of the error
in your initialization file and remove it.  Use the `-debug-init' option
to XEmacs to view a complete error backtrace."

Any suggestions on how to repair this problem would be appreciated.
