It also works for me in Gentoo. The problem appears to be limited to Windows 
(XP?). 

There I have tried various Emacs 22 versions,
including the current release version, and emacs 21.3 from the above 
site. The problem is present in all.

I have posted elsewhere that the problem appears to be in detecting 
the Octave prompt. I believe this because in shell and eshell Octave 
'works' but no prompt is echoed. 

There is code in ess that occasionally reports 'timed out waiting for 
prompt,' so there may be a hint as to what handles prompts in the functions 
used there, but my elisp is still very rudimentary so I don't know that I 
will be the one to figure it out.
