[ESS] ess-remote

It would be nice if I could specify credentials and have ess run R on a
remote machine instead of me having to start an emacs shell and run
"ssh -t user at host 'cd mydir; R --no-readline --no-save --interactive"
there and then M-x ess-remote.

However, after I did the above some things do not work.
C-c C-n works as with the local R, but C-M-x hangs.
When I stop it with C-g, the *shell* buffer with the remote R process
shows the first line of the function definition and the "+" sign:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
> get.country.ISO.table <- function () {
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
and I have to enter the rest of the function with C-c C-n.

(maybe I do not need --interactive?)
