[racket] Buttons on the toolbar don't appear

No, I actually have to edit the #lang line. I just tried this on a
Windows machine running DrRacket, version with the
file I sent and get the same behavior. Switching languages -- say from
"Determine language from source" to "Beginner student language"
doesn't help -- when I switch to BSL, the "step" and "check syntax"
buttons appear, but then disappear when I switch back. If I just click
on the #lang line and type a space, though, the buttons appear.
