What version of R, Xemacs, ESS, and Debian? What are the "crash" symptoms (error message?). Have you tried upgrading everything you can (ESS has recently released a new stable (5.2.x) version).

As a possible item to check, run

ps ajx | grep R

from a terminal after you exit R from within ESS. On my Win XP box, I've found that R sometimes fails to exit cleanly after a q("no"), and remains running after ESS has tried to disengage. The ESS "*R*" buffer remains hung, and Rterm's user CPU usage goes to about 98%. Killing R from the task manager stopped this. The same might (might!) be an issue under Debian, and killing it from the command line might help.

Cheers

Jason
