[racket] DrRacket editor behaviour change

Just to double check: you mean shift-down, not just down, right?

DrRacket does indeed implement those keystrokes itself, but I'm seeing what
you describe as the 5.3.1 behavior in 5.3.3 and in the git head under mac
os x and under a relatively recent git version under linux.

When you choose the Edit | Keybindings | Show Active Keybindings menu item
and search for home, do you see "select-to-beginning-of-file" as the
c:s:home key and when you search for "s:down" do you see "select-down" as
the corresponding keystroke?
