The man page entry for the [namespace unknown] command states that "The default handler for all namespaces is ::unknown." Per TIP 181, and observed behavior, this appears to be incorrect. Rather, the default handler for the :: namespace is ::unknown, and the default handler for all other namespaces calls the handler for the :: namespace.

This error appears in both the Tcl 8.5 and Tcl 8.6 man pages at www.tcl.tk.
