Dear Rodney,

Thx for you answer, it actually made me realised that my problem was 
different from Ali... I don't use ssh.el, but I directly connect to ssh in 
an emacs shell (M-x shell), and then use R through ess-remote (I ended up 
doing this to use 'screen' sessions on the server). I just read and replied 
too quickly, sorry for the noise!

This said, I'll probably have a better look at Tramp in the future, if I 
have some time for it!
