I'm not sure what you are trying to do here. If you want multipanel 
levelplot displays in the Trellis sense, this is not the way to do it, 
see example(levelplot). If for some reason you want trellis plots in 
grid viewports, then you will have to tell the print method not to 
start a new page, by replacing 

levelplot(z~x*y, grid)


print(levelplot(z~x*y, grid), newpage = FALSE)

push.viewport etc are deprecated, BTW.
