This problem is caused by a mistake in what the latexmk maintainer 
(i.e., me) uploaded to CTAN.  The uploaded zip file contained files with 
both names, even though only one file was supposed to be used.

The file sweave_latexmkrc should be deleted, and the file 
Sweave_latexmkrc retained.  The next release of latexmk will have the 
upload problem corrected.

Thanks for noticing this
