I think Martin was refering to the *R* buffer, not the buffer you are
in when editing an *.R file.

FWIW: I can confirm the missing fontification in the *R*
buffer. Everything is fine the *.R buffer. 

Opposed to others have not seen any drastic slowdown in evaluation
using `C-c C-c'.

This is using either the current stable ESS version or the SVN

OTOH I'm using:

GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.8.20) of
2007-03-18 on golem

Just my $0.02,

Linus: I'll throw the ball, see? 
       Then you go bounding after it and bring it back!
Snoopy: Maybe we should think about this a little more.
