Since I haven't seen this, any further information you can provide would be useful. Meanwhile, I've been meaning to make `raco pkg remove' setup only the same collections that were setup for `raco pkg install' (minus any that are gone after the uninstall), and I've pushed that change. I don't expect that the change fixes the underlying problem that you're seeing. _________________________ Racket Developers list: http://lists.racket-lang.org/dev
