[ESS] plot windows in ESS with Aquamacs version of Emacs on OS 10.4.9

This strikes me as more of an R-sig-mac question than an ESS 
question. The R-sig-mac archives might even have an answer.

One solution is to get an X-windows-aware version of emacs, and work 
entirely within the X11.app environment. This will give you an 
interface essentially like what you would have on a Linux box, if 
that's what you had before.

Normally, warnings from R are not the same as errors; given that you 
got a warning I would expect there to be a quartz() window somewhere 
that is receiving and displaying graphs. Was that not the case?
