Since I don't know (so far) how to properly stop a running R process, I used "Force kill" for Aquamacs in the dock. After a new start, the warning then showed up again. But choosing "yes" opened Aquamacs without flaws and all previously opened buffers opened again. I then quit normally and reopened Aquamacs and the warning wasn't there. So maybe it only appears after a hard kill [which one shouldn't do anyway].

Maybe we are a wee bit off topic (or my post is going to be)...  But, a 
long R script can be interrupted with C-g.  That should make emacs 
responsive.  If you still need to do more damage to the R process, then 
you can visit the *R* buffer and do all sorts of naughty things with the 
Signals menu.
