Dear John,

I don't have a real R64 binary on my machhine, so I just did the

ln -s /usr/bin/R ~/bin/R64

and then added 

(setq ess-r-versions '("R-1" "R-2" "R64"))

to the end of .emacs and restarted emacs.  I could then do

M-x R64

which starts R (but of course is R 2.9.2)

Could you try this symlink approach (e.g. R99 -> regular 'R')  to see if
the problem is whether the ess-r-version code or to the binary being
linked to.  

ALso, I asssume your R64 binary is on the list of paths searched by
emacs, which you can see by
C-h v exec-path
