I am running emacs 23 and R 2.10 with the ess (version 5.5) setup in 
.emacs listed below.  When using the new html help system with R I get a 
small emacs popup window related to the help file but the window is 
empty.  The html browser pops up fine.  Is there a way to suppress the 
small window?


(setq ess-ask-for-ess-directory nil)
(setq inferior-ess-same-window nil)
(setq ess-help-own-frame 'one)
(setq inferior-R-args "--no-restore --no-save")
