Does anybody who tried highlight.ss get errors like these when loading
scheme files?

open-input-text-editor: end index outside the range [1997,3000]: 1024
open-input-text-editor: end index outside the range [2596,4000]: 2011
#<struct:object:/home/daniel/plt/collects/stepper/stepper-tool.ss:525:8>:1:0: read: expected a ')'

And does anyone know what the errors mean?
