have you got the latest version of ESS?  that might help us debug.

that is odd --what are the Emacs versions on the two machines?  Do you 
see "Ed" in the mode line of a .R buffer?

foo.R    ... (ESS[S] [none] Rox Ed)

if not, try re-opening the .R file after ess-eldoc has been loaded and
you have a *R* session.
