Sigh... predictably, everything seems to be working correctly for me, now, so I'm unable to reproduce the problem. I would hazard a guess that I'd fixed the problem with the elimination of some old planet-isms that were hiding in the code, but it sounds like you have the most recent version. If you have time, it might be helpful to see the contents of your "pkgs.rktd" file; it lives in <your-home>\AppData\Roaming\Racket\5.3.6\pkgs ... or something like that :).
