[plt-scheme] Current library collection paths and Check Syntax

I haven't been able to make drscheme choke on this program. I get the
same error you do, but I get the error message clearly labelled as a
bug in the program, not an internal drscheme error. Was there maybe
something I'm missing in the example?
