Based on the path and the code, it looks like you downloaded a very old
version of SchemeUnit and installed it using 'setup-plt' (or through
DrScheme's install .plt archive dialog). That's the only way I can
imagine those files winding up in a 'collects' directory. If you didn't
do that, I'm truly confused. That code is from a couple revisions of the
PLT class system ago, which is why the code breaks.

To get rid of the error, remove the schemeunit directory from the
collects directory.

The proper way to use SchemeUnit now is to put the following line in the
modules (or in the repl) where you wish to define tests:

  (require (planet "test.ss" ("schematics" "schemeunit.plt" 2 6)))
