[ESS] clash between setwd macro and skeleton-pair

Dear emacs gurus,

Thanks to previous tips from this list I've been the .emacs file shown
below for a while, and I'd like to get rid off an annoying clash in
it. The first option I have set is to autocomplete matching
parentheses etc. The last option defines a shortcut for R to setwd(
... where the current file actually lives ....), which I find very
useful. Somehow this last macro is incompatible with the first,
typically resulting in


Best regards,


My .emacs file contains:

(setq ess-eval-visibly-p nil)
   (setq skeleton-pair t)
   (global-set-key (kbd "(") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
   (global-set-key (kbd "[") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
   (global-set-key (kbd "{") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
   (global-set-key (kbd "\"") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
   (global-set-key (kbd "\'") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
   (global-set-key (kbd "\`") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
   (global-set-key (kbd "<") 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)


(fset 'my-setwd-macro
      [?\C-  ?\C-u ?\M-| ?p ?w ?d return ?\C-p ?s ?e ?t ?w ?d ?\( ?\" ?\C-e ?\"

     (define-key ess-mode-map "\C-c\C-s" 'my-setwd-macro)))
