[ESS] could intending around code chunks be fixed in Sweave docs?

R debugger often enteres things that it is not supposed to enter. I
noticed it with { } blocks. I have reported this on R-devel but so far
no response [1]. If you can find any other reproducible peculiarities
please report them to R folks. More people complain, higher chance it
will be solved.

Next time this happens. Press C-c ~ (I assume you use ESS 13.05 already)
to see the call stack. If you see anything starting with .ess_ there,
that means it gets stuck in one of our functions.
