[ESS] ess-swv-PDF hack(?)

This is due to a recent change in Sweave (a rather irritating change  
in my opinion).

You can solve it in 2 ways
1) add Sweave.sty to your latex path. I am not too happy with this  
because I am sure that I will forget to do it after next release of R  
and I might miss out on updates.
2) Follow the advice in the NEWS file about setting  
SWEAVE_STYLEPATH_DEFAULT. I do it in the following way: I add a line  
to ~/.Rprofile
This will get the old behaviour back.
