Thanks for sending this along, unfortunately ob-R.el is currently
without a core maintainer, so I'm not sure who on list would have the
expertise to review your submission.  Although hopefully those
experiencing the problem can at least check if it works for them.

Perhaps replacing the commented "setq ess-local-process-name" line with
ess-switch-process could solve this problem?  Could the process name be
found programatically, perhaps using the regexp solution above.

This looks good to me, perhaps it should be added to the Worg page on
using R with Org-mode?
