Slightly off Arjuns topic is a problem with Schunk, Sinput and Soutput 
environments. They just use to much inline space. I have tweade this
problem with sed (see bellow for Makefile content), but wonder if there 
is a better solution.

Thanks, Gregor

default: Sweave fixTex
	texi2pdf --clean wrapper.tex && evince wrapper.pdf

Sweave: # Sweave myPaper.Rnw
	R CMD Sweave myPaper.Rnw

fixTex: Sweave # Change all S* environments to smallverbatim
	@cat myPaper.tex | sed -e '/\\begin{Sinput}/d' \
	                       -e '/\\end{Sinput}/d' \
	                       -e '/\\begin{Soutput}/d' \
	                       -e '/\\end{Soutput}/d' \
	                       -e 's/\\begin{Schunk}/\\begin{smallverbatim}/g' \
	                       -e 's/\\end{Schunk}/\\end{smallverbatim}/g' \
	> myPaper2.tex
	@mv -f myPaper2.tex myPaper.tex
