Tclsh creates "????@???@8" empty files under Linux



Hi,

I have a strange bug with the last release of
Active Tcl v. 8.4.19 under Linux (with KUbuntu).
Strange empty files with name "????@???@8" have been created
everywhere on my disk,
everytime I launch a Tcl script.
Reducing the problem, it seems that the tclsh
interpreter creates these files, as shown in the
sample Linux session at the end of this message.

Do you have any idea of what may cause that ?

That creates an error "Valid UTF-8 data (hex:) followed by invalid
UTF-8 sequence"
when I try to browse my svn files. At first, I thought it was a SVN
problem, but the real problem is that svn tries to analyse these
files,
which have been created, it seems, by tclsh.

Best regards,

Michaël
