I think you'll want to rewrite the function to not call x11().  If you
are using lattice graphics, be sure to call print on the resulting
plot object:

myplot <- xyplot(...)

I gather you want two plots near each other.  I suspect the par
options with mfrow is the way to go.  You may need to change the size
of the plot in the Rnw file to get the ratios you want.
