[racket] match and debug in Advanced Student

This problem was caused by a bug in the bytecode compiler. The bug was
exposed by usual code (including a `set!' to an other unused procedure
`let' binding) in the "Debug" button's transformation of the expanded
`match' form.

I've pushed a repair to the git repo.
