hi John,
ess-site.el has the following snippet to set auto-mode-alist

           ;("\\.[Bb][Uu][Gg]\\'"         . ess-bugs-mode)
           ("\\.[Bb][Oo][Gg]\\'"         . ess-bugs-mode)
           ("\\.[Bb][Mm][Dd]\\'"         . ess-bugs-mode)
           ("\\.[Jj][Mm][Dd]\\'"         . ess-jags-mode)

I'm not sure why the first regexp, that would match .bug, is commented
out.  (Rodney, is this you?

ESS[BUGS] & ESS[JAGS]:  I'd still like to do more testing before a
release, but I think this all works now.  Enjoy!  Comments welcome.

In say kidney.bug, what happens if you do M-x ess-bugs-mode  ?

Sorry, I don't use bugs-mode, so can't help further.
