I'm currently using debian wheezy and have racket installed from repositories. It is called 5.1.1+dfsg1-2, don't know what dfsg1-2 means. Same with racket 5.1.1 built from sources. And I've experienced same problem on 5.0, when I was using fedora.

Other problem is: ctrl+f is not highlighting matches with pink ellipse.

Maybe its a hardware or video drivers problem, I have ATI card on a laptop. I'll try to install racket on windows mashine to test its behaviour.
