Ok, but now I'm slightly confused.  If DivaScheme was originally installed 
through PLaneT, it should have also gotten wiped out when you removed 
/Library/PLT Scheme, since that's also where your personal PLaneT stuff 
should live.

Just to isolate: do you remember if you renamed the PLT directory before 
or after installing DivaScheme?  The renaming is possibly relevant.

I remember that error message did mention 'errortrace', ad DivaScheme does 
use it in its private libraries (mred-state.ss, utilities.ss)...

... Oh!  Now I see that I should NOT be using errortrace.ss directly, but 
should be using errortrace-lib.ss instead.  My bad.  That might be the 
problem.  I will fix my use of it.

Also, before you installed 370, what version of DrScheme did you have, and 
did you also have DivaScheme installed then?

Let me fix my use of errortrace there, and then I'll update the PLaneT 
package.  Thanks again!
