Well, if the variable is 't', you should be prompted for a working
directory (presuming you work with some flavor of S). The default
that will prposed to you is what Emacs consider to be its current
working directory, much like when you find a file.
For example, if you have a file ~/work/toto.R opened and you do 'M-x
R RET', Emacs/ESS should prompt you for a working directory for the R
session, proposing as default ~/work/.
Is this what you want?
