Extensions:
[incr Tcl] as shipped with TclPro 1.0

ReproducibleScript:
With our app, which has an embedded Tcl interpreter, if we pipe stdout to a file and a large amount of text is passed over time (including newlines), Tcl crashes. The tcl code is writing to stdout, using "puts stdout <txt>" several hundred or thousand times. Seems to happen (from what I've been told) with some Tcl scripts using tclsh80.exe. Everything works fine when not piping the output, and the crash itself is intermittent and not very reproducable (which doesn't make it any easier to fix...).

Reportedly fixed in 8.2.0.
