yes, that's the current default behavior of the *UNRELEASED* development
version of ESS

{I do see the same problem: as ESS developer I do work with the
 unreleased development version; but I would rarely recommend
 that version for the public}

    FM> Emacs 23.4.1

this is problematic:  ESS 13.03	is *NOT* released, and what you
get there is a snapshot of our development version which may or
may not work correctly.

    FM> R 3.0.0

works fine, and is absolutely unrelated to the "problems" you
report above.
