I was also surprised to see this in the code. What shall we call by
default then? I am not using S+ at all so have no clue. What is the
universal emacs function to start it?
Can you please check if this version works for you. If so I will commit.
(defun ess-start-process-specific (language dialect)
"Start an ESS process typically from a language-specific buffer, using
LANGUAGE (and DIALECT)."
(error "The value of `dialect' is nil"))
(let ((dsymb (intern dialect)))
(format " ..start-process-specific: lang:dialect= %s:%s, current-buf=%s\n"
language dialect (current-buffer)))

It basically relies on the value of ess-dialect and calls the function
indicated by the dialect if such exists. Topically it is "S+6".
