[ESS] help popup: how to configure?

Hi all,

I have the following problem: when I'm writing a script I get this kind
of `help popup' (this kind of yellow box). This is nice. The problem is
that this popup does not disappear. I have to close (!) emacs. I don't
know whether this is a problem of ESS, of emacs or of my window manager
(openbox). In any case, this is really disturbing.

If I do the following:
(setq ac-use-quick-help nil)

I can (as far as I understand the variable) get rif of this box, but I
disable the mechanism of auto-complete in all buffers... which is not
what I want.

Therefore my question:
1. is anyone also having this problem? If yes, any solution?
2. maybe easier (and a little bit off topic): is there a way to set this
   variable only for R buffers?

many thanks in advance,
