Tom, I have to apologize profusely.  How often do I submit a bug report that actually contains useful information on the bug, never to hear from anyone.  And now, I submit a bug report that is less than useful and someone actually cares.

But I am ashamed to say, that it would be almost impossible for me to replicate this as I'd have to remove the new Tcl, install the old Tcl and try again, and well, I unfortunately just don't have the time.

Basically it looked like they were symbols involved in initialization of the Tcl Main, but more, I cannot say.
