[ESS] "?" not working with Julia?

Dear All,

I just did a fresh install of ESS and the Debian binary of Julia
(v. 0.4.2-3) and accessing the help does not seem to work. For instance, if
I do

julia> ?fft

I get

ERROR: UndefVarError: help not defined.

Likewise, C-c C-d C-d fails with the same error (though C-c C-d C-a works
fine).  I think this might be related to the removal of help as a function
in Julia around 0.4 (though I think apropos should also disappear soon too
if I understand correctly:

I guess this is a bug in ESS, but I was reluctant to submit it since I am
not really sure.
