I have to admit I wasn't sure about the difference with the function 
Stephen presented... As an addition, I have this in my .emacs file:

(defun my-ess-post-run-hook ()
   (local-set-key "\C-c w" 'ess-execute-screen-options))
(add-hook 'ess-post-run-hook 'my-ess-post-run-hook)

which is supposed to run ess-execute-screen-options when I start a new 
R. Note that this doesn't work if a .RData is loaded, which can be 
problematic when working on several computers: here you have to use 'C-c 
w' to do it by hand.
