Further info:

When I use Rterm in a cmd shell the connection works.
When I use Rterm in a shell within Emacs the connection works.
Something must be going wrong in the way ESS does things.

Warning messages:
1: In RODBC::odbcDriverConnect() :
  [RODBC] ERROR: state 08004, code 12154, message [Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified
2: In RODBC::odbcDriverConnect() :
  ODBC connection failed

I have all the paths setup and the driver is installed correctly. Tnsping finds the db.

Let me know if anybody can help.
