First, yay!

Second, this change is, I think, responsible for the following bug.
If I now try to run a file which requires some other file that doesn't
exist, DrScheme prints the following error:

file-or-directory-modify-seconds: error getting file/directory time:
/home/samth/sw/plt-trunk/collects/scribble/html-variants.ss (No such
file or directory; errno=2)

instead of the former syntax error, which took me to the source of the require.
