This is a question that I should have sent to 'ess-help', but I
take my chances...

In 'NEWS' (1.9.0) I read the good news

    o   Underscore '_' is now allowed in syntactically valid names, and
        make.names() no longer changes underscores.  Very old code

but when I try it in emacs (ESS 5.1.24), my '_' are changed to ' <-  '!
What can I do? Upgrade to a beta version of ESS? (I want to continue 
using ESS!)
