[ESS] No documentation displayed on R 2.4.1

Hello ESS Gurus,
I recently upgraded to R 2.4.1 (from 2.3.1) on my Windows machine, and
upgraded to ESS 5.3.3 to fix the "cannot change value of locked binding
for '.Last.value'" error.

Now, when trying to access function documentation (?FUN), my emacs
display splits and my bottom emacs display opens the *help[R](FUN)
buffer (as always). However, there is no documentation--the buffer is
empty. Has anyone seen and solved this? I've come across this on both my
laptop and desktop, both accepting the standard R installation, so I do
not believe it to be an install glitch. Let me know if more information
is needed. 

Note, ESS 5.3.2 shows the same behavior as 5.3.3.

Thanks in advance,
