Quite a sad situation, many good modules lack maintainers :(

I'm not an expert but I gave it a shot.

I would say that after applying changes to my-ess-eval and to
org-babel-edit-prep:R as suggested by Andrew, it looks like everything
is working right for me. Once I hit C-c ' I see properly named buffer
appear with new process. Then if I hit S-RET it asks me what session to
use and since I have ido mode, it already highlights proper session
name, so I just hit RET. Perhaps it worth recommending to use ido?

Note that I do not have to enter process name.

If I quite R, while editing code in a separate buffer, and hit S-RET it
is executed in the wrong one without any question being asked :(

I'm running somewhat recent bzr version of Emacs with default Org in it.
