[racket-dev] raco setup & documentation indexing change?

I was seeing that searches that were performed by typing in the
browser when viewing the file:


contained links in some strange place (a temporary racket tree I'd
made to test something at some earlier point in time).

I deleted the directory /Users/robby/Library/Racket/ and then
ran 'raco setup' and now my links go to the right place. I didn't used
to have to delete the directory to get this behavior.
