this looks like the issue I reported in February.  Here is the response Lionel sent the list at that time (feb 18, 02:55) I choose to ignore the nuisance.



This is a known issue with ESS 18.10 and Emacs 27. Either dowgrade Emacs or install dev ESS to fix this. A new release is much needed but there's still a bunch of problems to solve. We're aiming for an April release.

As a workaround you can add this to your config:

(setq ess-can-eval-in-background nil)

You won't get the parasite output as you type. Unfortunately this disables all contextual help (eldoc, completions, ...).
