ahahahaha, sorry, dude, couldn't help.  It seems it took me years of
standing it and file a complain here to actually discover it's a
Windows issue:


in other words, sometimes as I type alt+shift to do all the
hierarchical editing, it clashes with the default Windows keycombo to
change the keyboard layout.  So, it's not Racket at fault here.  I'll
just change the Windows default and stop being such a lazy bastard...
