Yes indeed. As usual, I found the answer to my question shortly after I posted it to the forum. John Fox clearly describes this behavior in his paper "An Introduction to ESS + XEmacs for Windows Users of R". I guess I was confused because the version of Emacs/ESS I installed on Windows (courtesy of Vincent Goulet) did not require me to confirm that I wanted to use R. Thanks everyone for the assistance.
