Thanks very much Kevin. The setq did the trick. I am not clear on why such
a strange new default was chosen, but I'm sure others have discussed that.
Please note that I'm not using S-Plus. ESS thinks I am, and hence the
failure when I attempt to send lines to the R console even though the R
console launched fine from within ESS.
If it matters, I have defined the following in my .emacs
; See http://blogisticreflections.wordpress.com/2009/10/01/r-object-
'((numeric . "summary")
(factor . "table")
(integer . "summary")
(lm . "summary")
(other . "str")))
; Allow for object-type-specific tooltips for R objects
(defun ess-R-object-tooltip ()
;; my default key map
(define-key ess-mode-map "\C-c\C-g" 'ess-R-object-tooltip)
