Hi all,

Running a Mac 10.6.8 and current version of DrRacket won't start on it today.

racket runs just fine and also DrRacket v5.0.2.

Here's a trace of the problem as best I can get trying to start it from the command line.

/Applications/Racket\ v5.2.1/bin/drracket ; exit;
read-bitmap: expects type <path-string or input-port> as 1st argument, given: '#(#<procedure:draw-honu> 270 270); other arguments were: 'unknown/alpha #f #t

 === context ===
/Applications/Racket v5.2.1/collects/racket/draw/private/bitmap.rkt:841:0: read-bitmap
/Applications/Racket v5.2.1/collects/drracket/private/drracket-normal.rkt: [running body]
/Applications/Racket v5.2.1/collects/drracket/drracket.rkt: [running body]

And also a question.

What's the best way to report a bug in DrRacket when DrRacket won't start up to give you the handy bug reporting facility it contains?
