Hi John:

There is no ESS menu for BUGS since there is not much sensible that you can
do with BUGS interactively (technically, the capability is there, but who
needs it?).  Although, CPU speeds have increased dramatically, my shortest
BUGS runs are still around 10 minutes.  So, ESS[BUGS] has been implemented
mostly from the batch perspective, therefore, no menu.  Looking forward to
the day when my runs are only in the seconds and a menu would make sense :o)
As to what the problem is with Emacs, can't really help you there.  Don't
use it.  And, I hear there may be issues with 22.1 as well.  Sorry.
