I compiled it from source, downloaded from www.drscheme.org. it's version 301, but I've tried 209 too, which gives the same problem. The fact that it happens with all versions makes me think it's not drscheme but rather Xorg7, but then again, drscheme IS the only application that doesn't work at the moment. everything else I've got runs just fine (or at least the stuff I've already used, which is pretty much everything...)
So I'm not sure, I guess it's a combination of drscheme en xorg7 that just doesn't cooperate... let's hope for fixes soon...
