Hi, everyone!

I've had the same problem on my gentoo (2.6.20). The above execution
method, to my surprise, solved it! I then tried to learn the meaning
of "-j" switch, but it isn't documented anywhere in the manuals(I've
built plt-scheme from the gentoo portage). Could you enlighten me in
that matter?

I mean, what IS the "JIT", how does it affect the use of drscheme and
(how) can the issue be solved so that drscheme is run without the "-j"

By the way, the tests you've suggested:

failed at 'deep' by timeout.

Thanks in advance,
