[plt-scheme] drscheme in Xorg-7.0?

I got the same problem Drscheme 209 and Drscheme 301 crash after the
splashscreen with a segmentation fault. There is a thread in the gentoo

It appears it's segfaulting when a call is made to the
WxWindows::SetFont(), I can't confirm that because I had to downgrade to
make my homework for school, but this bug alone is preventing the usage
of the new xorg.
