TCL is leaking memory when only running a simple
program that calls Tcl_CreateInterp & Tcl_DeleteInterp
& Tcl_Finalize.

Our program (Under Solaris 8 with all TCL versions
8.3.4,8.3.5, 8.4) call those 3 functions in a loop and we
see that each time a memory leak of 2400 bytes is not
freed. We also see it with Purify.

This is very urgent for us as with use TCL a lot in our
programs.

P.S. You can send a reply directly to my email.

    If you did not compile with -DPURIFY, then please do so and
    rereport more specifically if you believe there is an issue. I
    have done the leak tests with purify and tcl runs its test suite
    without any memory leaks.
