[racket] Beginner can't get some Macintosh command keys to work

For either of you, does turning on Caps Lock do it as well? DrRacket 
does this weird thing on my Ubuntu box, where CTRL-<anything> inserts a 
capitalized <anything> when Caps Lock is on, instead of invoking a shortcut.

I haven't reported it yet because I thought it might be an Ubuntu thing 
only - it seemed to start happening when I got 11.04 - but none of my 
other programs do it.
