That is not the default behaviour of Sweave, which is to use 
\usepackage{Sweave}.  Do you have SWEAVE_STYLEPATH_DEFAULT set, or 
some other non-standard setting that would cause this?  (That is even 
less needed than before, and it may be removed before 2.12.0 is 

All of CRAN and BioC have been checked in the last 24 hours with 
standard settings, so this does look like a problem with some 
non-standard setup.

If we can reproduce it we can address the problem, but there is 
nothing here that I can do more than guess at.
