[ESS] Problem interrupting an R process

I have recently started using ESS with the carbon version of Emacs 
compiled for Mac OS X (v 10.3.9). I run a lot of long simulations in R 
and frequently need to interrupt  a running R process (associated with 
the iESS mode) when developing code. My problem is that the ESS 
supplied interface for this (BREAK via C-c C-c or via the menu for 
example) frequently causes Emacs to hang. This also occurs if I issue 
the same (BREAK) command when R is sitting idle. Does anyone know if 
this is a known problem? It is rather frustrating as I can't really use 
ESS mode as I would like to at the moment and it is so useful in all 
other respects.

Many Thanks
