The exe versions built with Racket versions 5.1, 5.2 and 5.2.1 all work nicely.

An interesting (?) fact is the size difference between the last one and the
other resulting exes:
5.1              8 978 KB
5.2              8 239 KB
5.2.1           8 748 KB   11 716 KB

So the last build process pulls in roughly 3 MB more stuff than the others.
This may be caused by some changes that have been done to Racket but
then again it might have something to do with the error situation.
