Sweave does not allow line breaks after forward slashes ("/"). This might lead

it moves the entire "substring" in the following line and leaves the current
line rather empty. This problem can be solved if Sweave is allowed to introduce
line breaks after forward slashes. (I guess that this problem can also be solved
if parse() adds a blank after a forward slash.)
