Hello Neil, I use racket 5.1.3 that comes with
Ubuntu 12.04 x86 32-bit.  I haven't seen any
strange behavior.

Just a sanity-check question, no cause for concern...

Has anyone seen strange behavior with Racket on Ubuntu 12.04?

I have some code and data that reportedly runs fine on an older
version of Ubuntu (which will take a while for me to verify), but
that that at some point has an incorrect Racket value internally
when run under Ubuntu 12.04.  (In this case, Racket is 5.2.1 with
CGC collector on x86 32-bit, and there is an old-style CGC C
extension involved, which has worked on multiple platforms for many
years under heavy loads.)

I suspect there is a simpler explanation (i.e., a recent application
code change that does not actually run anywhere), but while I wait
for verification, I thought I might as well sanity-check possible
Ubuntu 12.04 problems, however unlikely.
