[R] Bugreport on integration of Sweave and latex beamer

I think I have isolated a problem with integration between Sweave and beamer.

Could you please see the file:

Unfortunately, it uses some of my internal libraries, so you can't run
it. When I put it through Sweave, I get:


which is, of course, a generic latex file which you can read and run.

When I try to use pdflatex, I get the error:

Runaway argument?
> prices <- cbind(mydb("macro", "nifty", freq = "w"),
! Paragraph ended before \FV at BeginScanning was complete.
<to be read again> 
l.60 \end{frame}

I transplanted the R code from bugdemo.Rnw into an ordinary latex
article context, and everything works fine. Hence, I'm sure it's
something to do with the integration between Sweave and beamer. Are
there some catches that I ought to know about?
