... and the edit makes the question quite confusing, as the code it contains works just fine.

comment MiKTeX in inconsistent state: warnings about “SlantFont/ExtendFont” only being usable with “embedded Type1 fonts”
Thanks -- this really helped. A follow-up question: should one leave paratype uninstalled, or is it important to reinstall it?

comment How to Insert into Latex a Text File whose name is a variable?
@Werner -- I disagree in this case. The questioner wants to know how to use a file name calculated in R to insert text file into the *.tex file that will then be compiled by LaTeX.

comment How can I tell LaTeX that an \input file is in a different encoding from inputenc?
@wleoncio -- Superb. I'm glad to hear that helped you isolate the problem. Cheers.

@wleoncio Just to clarify, did you wrap the call that actually produces the warnings with suppressWarnings()? I realize I gave you the wrong advice, since the call to sink() is not where you are getting your warning. I'll edit my answer above accordingly.

comment Repeated slides in beamer
+1 Thanks for this. For the OP's particular situation, I prefer your solution to my own. (The construct I showed is really most useful when the graphics files to be included are being produced by R on the fly, during the Sweave()ing process).

Very glad to hear that, especially since my code block was untested ;). By the way, I wasn't sure if you really want the "." at the end of the \begin{frame} line. It looks out of place to me, but I've also never used the beamer class... If there's a reason for it, would you mind explaining what it is? Thanks!
