Hi Daniel:

So, you are saying that you see the R-specific toolbar even when you are 
editing .sas files?  Well, that is not the intent, and I don't see that 
myself either.  Could you share some of your settings to see if that 
might be an issue?  As to the default toolbar (which is called 
default-toolbar by the way); that has nothing at all to do with ESS, but 
you should be able to tweak it with custom and I don't really want to 
get into it more than that :o)
