There isn't an init file for DrScheme, but I have considered adding
exactly that kind of specification to the language dialog for the
module language. For other languages where the collections are used
(PLT > MrEd, PLT > MzScheme, and PLT > Pretty Big), you can just put
this at the beginning of your program:


If you use CVS, I've just checked in changes to DrScheme to support
this for the module language. See the "details" section of the language

I am unable to reproduce this problem. Can you send a complete program
that demonstrates the problem and let me know what language you were
