hi Andreas,

I am also running intrepid ubuntu, and can confirm that the extra R
icons on toolbar are no longer present in R mode.  It looks like some
of the regular emacs icons have changed from emacs 22 to 23, which might
be causing problems.  I may not get time to look at it for a while

Thanks for reporting it to ess-help (better not on r-help as Martin has
already pointed out).
