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.
