>  thanks. i wasn't sure if 372 = 372, so i re-installed just now and the problem persists. based on Noel's hint i tried the code in MZScheme and I think it worked there. i don't suppose the fact that i'm running on a W2k3 server machine under VmWare is relevant?

No, that's not relevant. There is only one 372. :)

One thing that worked around one of the bugs (I've lost track which
one was which) is to do something like this:

  (define s->u string->url)

at the top of your file and then use s->u instead of string->url everywhere.

A pain, I know. Sorry for the trouble.
