I just updated ess from git (2737b5b98784961897503c29c139c735cb0ead24) 
and am having problems getting the ess-remote command to complete.

emacs 23.2.1, Debian 6.0.7.  I start emacs (non-gui) and start a shell 
within it.  I launch R via a script that sets up an MPI session 
(openmpi) and give the emacs command ess-remote.  I hit enter for R when 
prompted for the session type.

The terminal just sits there.  If I try to type in it there is no 
response.  If I hit ctl-g the line options(pager='cat') appears and I 
can type commands into R.  After doing this a couple of times iESS 
appeared in the mode line (it may have happened the first time).

I just tried reproducing the problem, and this time everything just worked.
