On Windows? From a version of R probably prior 2.4.0? It seems that
somewhere between 2.3.1 and 2.4.1 R on Windows started using the
Windows help browser by default. To view the help pages in Emacs,
> options(chmhelp = FALSE)
See ?Startup to have this command executed everytime R starts.
Now, can this be considered an ESS bug?
