[R] interrupting the sourcing of a file

Hi all

I'm running lm()/leaps() kind of computations within a loop, and I
submitted the entire thing by sourcing a file of R code in interactive
I'd like to interrupt the evaluation of this (it's taking way too long)
but I am not able to. 
I'm running R-1.3.0 from an emacs window (ESS-5.0) and I'm on a linux box,
(Debian). I tried Control-c Control-c (nothing happens), or Control-g
(Quit appears in the minibuffer window, but with no other consequences
for the R process). 

I could kill the emacs job, but of course this would cause all the
computations done in this session to be lost. I'd be happy to
prevent that from happening...

thanks in advance
