Ah, ok. That makes sense. Because this variable is buffer local now, you
are not setting the default value. Either use custom interface, or move
(setq ...) line before (require 'ess-site), or just

   (set-default 'ess-history-file nil) 

That buffer local value is needed, but marking it buffer local could
have been avoided. I have adjusted that in SVN. Now you have the 4th
option, update your SVN:)

Thanks for the report,
