[R] r-mode (ESS/XEmacs) issue solved

I was able to track down the problems I had
with xemacs / ESS / cygwin / MS W2000 to the
file "essd-r.el" in the ESS 5.1.18 package.
ESS seems to think, it is running
in a complete Unix environment and
sends the wrong command line option
("--no-readline" instead of "--ess")
to the MS W2000 executable "Rterm.exe".
My temporary patch looks as follows (not a general solution!)
;; ... some code ...
;; R that does the right thing irregardless of OS.
;; ... more code ...
;; replaced the following due to problems on cygwin / MS W2000
; (if (or (equal window-system 'w32) (equal window-system 'win32))
; "--ess "
; "--no-readline " )
"--ess " ; <Mirko.Luedde at CellControl.De>
;; ... even more code ...
Of course, using MS W2000 executables in a cygwin / XEmacs / ESS
environment is cheating, so I deserved right ;-)
By the way, I'm also facing problems compiling the R source
on cygwin. The preprocessor symbol "Win32" seems to be defined
and seems to disturb some ".h" and ".c" files.
Do you have any suggestions on compiling R on cygwin / W2000?
