This might not be a bug but at least seems to be some
sort of inconsistency:

$ tclsh8.4
% info patchlevel
8.4.11
% split "#a #b #c"
#a #b #c
% exit
$ tclsh8.5
% info patchlevel
8.5a3
% split "#a #b #c"
{#a} #b #c
% exit
$

Note the braces around first list element...

    This is a side effect of TIP 148 "Correct [list]-Quoting of the '#'
    Character"

    In other words, it's not a bug but instead a _fix_ for a
    very long-standing bug.
