That makes sense, thank you!

You can work around this by explicitly calling mzc periodically from a

My collection is in ..../Scheme-svn/
running mzc inside ..../Scheme-svn/common works perfectly, but
inside ..../Scheme-svn/gui-tools it doesn't because in these files there
(require common/something)

and mzc fails with the "collection not found" error.
Do I need to change my requires to relative paths, or should I had the
collection path to mzc (and then, how?) ?

Or even better: is there a way to add a collection permanently
(such as in the preferences), so that I don't have to declare them each
time I run racket, gracket, mzc, etc.
