This is more or less what it's supposed to do.

To close the open port, abort out of the error using control-G, then run a GC by calling (gc-flip).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Use an external text editor to create a scheme source file with an extra ( somewhere in it (a source file with a single ( character will do).
2. Open the file with (load "filename")
3. Go back and edit the source file and try to save it.

Expected Results: The fixed source file can be saved.

Actual Results: The fixed source file cannot be saved until the Scheme window is closed.

It seems like the loaded file is not closed on the PARSE-ERROR, so the text editor cannot save the file until the Scheme window is closed, closing the file. I'm using MIT Scheme running under Microsoft Windows NT 5.1 (Build 2600; Service Pack 2) IE-32
