I am having a similar problem. It happens when starting emacs  with -q and loading the three elisp lines above. Emacs hangs taking 100% of one core after opening a .R file or entering an indirect ESS[R] buffer from orgmode. This didn't happen before upgrading today. I checked out 324c92cb (git hash) and it works. I checked out df04907f and ESS hangs emacs.

Any ideas, or a profile command you would like me to run to diagnose this?
