First of all, thanks to all those who replied to my thread for helping
me out. I really appreciate it.

Considering that I don't know about the underlying architecture of Dr.
Scheme or about the language itself, I tried out something logical
which worked for me.

I opened the rogue file "rep.ss" in my text editor and located the
function which was causing Dr. Scheme to throw an exception and
commented it entirely. It's the one on line 1237 with a comment
";;setup the special repl values" on top of it. After doing that I
started Dr. Scheme and it loaded just fine.

Again I go the file "rep.ss" and uncomment the part which I had
commented and Dr. Scheme still worked fine. I guess after successful
startup, it must have fixed the 'plt-pref.ss' file as Matthew  said
earlier. Neat, isn't it? ;-)

Thanks a lot again. :-)
