How did you change the value of the variable? Every time you switch
from R to latex, it will re-run e.g. latex-mode, so that any variables
set temporarily will be lost. If you set it through a hook, you may
have better luck. e.g.
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook '(lambda() (setq ...)))
as the hooks will be rerun each time you switch mode.
This is a limitation of the current .Rnw setup.
