[racket-dev] racket-5.2.900.1-20120725 read ill-formed code error ?

Anyone know offhand why this error with 5.3 pre-release from yesterday?

UNKNOWN: : read (compiled): ill-formed code [./../src/validate.c:1573]

I built Racket from source.  32-bit x86 on Debian Stable.  I don't think 
there are any old versions of code in "compiled" directories being 
picked up, but I might have missed some, but I'd expect get an error 
message about the version mismatch.  PLaneT "html-template:1:1" is 
currently a bit messy with syntax objects and phases, and might be doing 
something questionable that 5.2.1 permitted.  This works fine with 
Racket 5.2.1.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to debug at this moment.  I'm posting 
now because I understand that a release is close, and I don't know how 
likely it is that this is a Racket bug.
