Thanks a lot, Frede,
for your "community help"!
I have one remark (below).

An alternative way, which I slightly prefer is to
customize inferior-R-args by adding "--no-save" to it.
[hackerishly: add the following line at the proper place
namely inside " (custom-set-variables .. ) "
to your ~/.emacs file :
'(inferior-R-args "--no-save ")
The slight advantage of this approach is that ``R can now'' that
this is set, e.g., via commandsArgs()
Note, Patrick that you possibly also want to add
"--no-restore-history" or even "--no-restore" to that list of R
command line arguments.
