Dear Prof. Ripley,

many thanks for your swift reply and - as usual - you are dead right
about your conclusion: 
I was not aware of sanitization introduced in 1.4-3 and prior to 2.5.0 I
used an older version of xtable with 2.4.1, although it was not my
intention to blame anybody, except myself now for not having done my
homework properly - flush.
