[R] Sweave gives different output with different R sessions

Hello everybody

I am using Sweave() to write a paper, but am getting an undesired pink
background on the eps files.

In trying to sort this out, I eventually ran Sweave() on the *same*
.Rnw file from within two separate R sessions; one of them gave pink
output and one gave white output.  This behaviour seems to be
reproducible (one session is ESS and one not) and even happens on the
testfile given in the Sweave() documentation.

The eps files created by the two R sessions differ in two lines which
presumably set the background colour.  My understanding must be flawed

What am I doing wrong?
