#4847 --enable-symbols=all info.test megaFAIL

obsolete: 8.6b1.1
Don Porter

In a --enable-symbols=all build of the Tcl trunk,
many, many tests in info.test fail.

The pattern appears to be that many [info frame]
results that should be "type source" come up as
"type eval" or "type proc" instead.

    The failures may require a -singleproc 1 run
    of the test suite as well.

    seeing this again while valgrinding.

    Just noting that [info frame] and 'tcltest -singleproc 1' interact extremely badly (saw this in 3527618, where I had a fix that was good enough for the affected tests). No idea why, but it would seem to indicate that there is room for improvement anyway.
