I think I could fix this in GRacket2 if I could figure out how to
provoke the bad behavior on my machine. I'm running Ubuntu 10, and
Slideshow works. I tried installing and running Maximus, but Slideshow
still worked. (Robby showed me bad behavior on his netbook, and I
thought it had something to do with Maximus, but it's apparently not as
simple as that.)

Does anyone know what I can do to trigger the problem?
