"utterly impossible" is probably containing a lot of trials.
Could you still be very specific with an example where the
following happens?

this is an unreleased version of Emacs.  21.4 has been released
in the mean time (though, last I heard, not yet for Windows).

    Henrik> Win XP

In any case, I can copy and paste a region with mixed Latex + R
code in an *.Rnw Sweave file, with the subversion-version of ESS
on Linux both with Emacs 21.3 and 21.4
[Note that I'm also using a recent version of AUCtex, 11.55
 {which is activated with an Sweave file}].
