I see.  I switched from auto-complete, which works out of the box here
(and so does RStudio), so I was a bit surprised.

Thanks!  I tried the following

(defun company-ess-setup ()
   (setq-local company-backends
               (append '(company-dabbrev) company-backends)))
(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook 'company-ess-setup)

Is this what you had in mind?  I mean, it sort of works, but the popup 
is lost and summm isn't among the suggestions, so I probably did this 
the wrong way.
