RefTeX does a bit of parsing at the beginning, if I recall correctly
(might not).  Anything that needs initialization is broken on any of
the current variations of Thorsten Ohl's Noweb mode (which includes
the "usual" one, as well as ESS's hacked version).

I've got another version of Noweb mode, quite, quite slick, which only
works on XEmacs (so we don't distribute it). 

I don't have time to check it for a while (other things like the next
release of ESS have more priority) but could ship it to people if
they'd like to see if it plays well with RefTeX.

Best yet would be a rewrite of noweb-mode to use mmm-mode (multi mode
tool thingy), but that's not happening for a bit.

On the other hand, it might just be the name extension thing.  But
that doesn't make as much sense to me.  I wish I had time today to
read code...
