That explains the problem, and DrScheme shouldn't fail to start when
these files get corrupted. We'll fix DrScheme.

The uninstaller probably doesn't know about the autotave TOC. We'll
have to fix that, too.

You could install a "security guard" with the `current-secutry-guard'
parameter before loaidng DrScheme:

  mred -f myguard.ss -mvqM drscheme

where "myguard.ss" installs a security guard that allows all access but
reports each accessed path.
