[plt-scheme] Simple IDE questions: multi-file projects

But now things work, I can come back to the original intent: having  
multi-file debugging and using the module browser.

a) multi-file debugging seems to interact badly with dynamic-require:  
I keep getting the dialog box asking me if I want to debug file a,  
then b, then c, then a, then b, etc... never stops -- bottom line is,  
I can't use it

b) the module browser does not open: I get the message "The module  
browser is only available for programs in the PLT languages and in the  
module language (and only for programs that have modules in  
them)." ... and my program is in the module language, my program is  
made up of 6-7 modules + a couple of test files that just require the  
modules and play with them.

any advice is greatly appreciated,
