[R] emacs 21.1, R-1.3.1, and ESS

On RedHat linux 7.2, I upgraded (?) Emacs and R at the same time and now 
I'm getting some funny business with R and ESS. I reinstalled ESS from 
the tarball and re-byte-compiled.  In particular, help.start() does 
work, and ESS works to send text regions to the R process, but ?function 
does not return anything, and the status line says

"ESS process not ready.  Finish your command before trying again."

Is this more likely a 1) known problem or 2) result of my poor 
installation of Emacs, R, or ESS?
