I'm either misreading what you wrote, or it's wrong. If I have this in a Sweave file:

<<>>=
x <- 1
@

<<>>=
y <- 2
@

<<>>=
print(x)
@

I will see the value of x getting printed, even though it came from two chunks earlier.

I think Uwe is right: there is some bug in the code you're running. Sweave isn't the problem.
