[racket] sandboxing issue while trying to print slideshow slides

That sounds right. It creates a cache of PNGs (with files named using 
MD5 sums) to keep from having to render them every time the slideshow is 
run. It needs filesystem access.

I seem to be running up against slideshow's sandbox: the package needs to run LaTeX and generate some image files, and so slideshow is hitting a "slide program attempted to execute external code" error.
