sounds a little odd. when your cursor ('point' in emacs terminology) is
in a file.R buffer, type 'C-h m'.  This brings up a help buffer,  which
should look like:

Enabled minor modes: ...

(Information about these minor modes follows the major mode info.)

ESS[S] mode:
Major mode for editing ESS source.
Optional arg ALIST describes how to customize the editing mode.
Optional arg PROC-NAME is name of associated inferior process.



then look to see what keybindings are listed in that help buffer
