[ESS] ESS tracebug watch always empty

In brief, I am unable to add expressions to the watch window.
While tracing through a function after a breakpoint from tracebug I did
C-c C-T w, which caused a watch window to pop up. I think I was in the
*R* window when I gave the command, and since I had typed on the command
line in that window the message about using M-N etc to step was not visible.
The watch window opened with instruction to use, for example, a to
append to expressions to watch. I typed a and was prompted for an
expression. I entered the name of a field in the reference class I was
debugging. After I hit enter the watch window was unchanged. I tried
with some other variables and, I think, a function, but nothing ever got
added to the window.
Hitting q in the watch window closed it.
Should I be doing something differently? Is this a bug? This is the
first time I tried to use the watch window.
I'm running 13.09-1 [git: 136742f6507eb946f8ff5351fa46541d0f5b82da]
(from development awhile ago) with emacs 23.2.1 and R 3.0.1
