Unfortunately ess-remote is broken. I cannot make it work because shell
seems to eat some of the input that ESS loads at startup. I see plenty
of errors filling up the buffer. If you have similar experience, take
ESSR.R file from ESS/R directory and source it manually on remote


This initialization code is critical and it should end up as an R
package. Hopefully in the next version of ESS.

Thanks for the pointer. I have added this to ess-remote. You need not do
it manually anymore.

Great detective job:)
