[racket] Racket on OS X

I tried to install the new Racket nightly on OS X (the previous one was 
missing cairo IIRC). Unfortunately it does not work very well. I don't 
really need the new version for anything right now but I though you 
would like to know.

This is what I have managed to find:

1. Different (horrible) antialiased font rendering when using white text 
on black background. [1]

2. Cmd- keyboard shortcuts do not work at all (no action). Surprisingly 
the Cmd-, shortcut for accessing the preferences window works.

3. In preferences I can only switch tabs and click OK/Cancel. Other 
buttons and drop-downs do not react to clicks. I can activate and change 
some of them using the keyboard (Tabs + Space).

I removed the org.racket-lang.prefs.rktd file but it didn't help.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to debug it.
