[racket] frustrated with error message

Hi -- this sounds like an old error from a couple of years ago. 

Which version of DrRacket (formerly DrScheme) are you using? 
Which OS? Or does this error happen across OSes?

(p.s. I wouldn't be frustrated with the error message in this 
case but with the error. But if you face what I think it is, 
there is a remedy.)
