[R] problem with Sweave on 1.6 on NT4

I recently compiled 1.6 on NT4 but
I am having a problem with Sweave.

Using the inbuilt 'Sweave-test-1.Rnw' file as an example:

> library(tools)
> testfile <- file.path(.path.package("tools"),
                      "Sweave", "Sweave-test-1.Rnw")

## create a LaTeX file
testfile <- file.path(.path.package("tools"),
+                       "Sweave", "Sweave-test-1.Rnw")
> ## create a LaTeX file
> Sweave(testfile)
Writing to file Sweave-test-1.tex
Processing code chunks ...
 1 : print term verbatim
 2 : term hide
 3 : echo print term verbatim
 4 : term verbatim
 5 : echo term verbatim
 6 : echo term verbatim eps pdf
 7 : echo term verbatim eps pdf

You can now run LaTeX on Sweave-test-1.tex 

But the opening lines of Sweave-test-1.tex are: 

% -*- mode: noweb; noweb-default-code-mode: R-mode; -*-

The line '\usepackage{c:etcRrw1060/share/texmf/Sweave}' is wrong.
In V1.5.1 it used to read 
i.e. 'c:etcRrw1060' should be 'c:/etc/R/rw1060' 
and I think the reference should be 
(not the 'share/texmf' folder) as that is where Sweave.sty is.
(The only *.sty file in the folder 'share/texmf/' is Rd.sty.)

Is there is something that I try to set to get Sweave
insert the correct line in latex to load the Sweave.sty file?
