Yes, that is correct. As far as I'm aware the print method for latex()
actually typesets the table. To avoid this, simply set file="" as I suggested.

If you would rather have a separate file for your table you can continue to
use your original method, e.g.,
<<>>=
tmp <- latex(x, file="x.tex")
@
\include{x.tex}

(not sure what your objection to this was in the first place).
