This is definitely a bug somewhere and I've had not a lot of luck
tracking it down.

I guess that what's happening is something is actually changing the
file on the disk (perhaps DrRacket itself) and it shouldn't.

So if you can figure out what feature of DrRacket is making this
happen or verify that the file is actually not changing on the disk,
either of those would be helpful.

Sorry for the annoyance :(
