I think the Tcl_IncrRefCount(valuePtr) statement does not belong there and causes a memory leak

    And yet masses of code doesn't leak. Seems someone's expectations are wrong...

    Any evidence? Because I do not think so, and neither does valgrind.

    It is balanced by a Tcl_DecrRefCount two lines below. The incr/decr spiel is necessary for ... hairy monster issues (see http://wiki.tcl.tk/14880\)
