I had a similar error the other day, running a freshly installed 
299.407, except that in my case, DrScheme gave the "code compiled for 
version 299.401" error on startup and refused to start, until I deleted 
the the planet cache.

I often have more than one PLT installation, e.g. the current release 
version and an SVN version.  I notice that collections installed from 
.plt files get put in version-numbered directories, like 299.401, so 
there's no conflict.  Perhaps Planet should do the same?
