New description:

 According to the above bug report, our Expect patch that fixes spurious
 failures
 in the GCC testsuite isn't the correct approach.  I would be grateful (as
 I'm
 sure TCL and Expect upstream would be) if someone could take the time to
 write a
 simple Expect script and/or a simple TCL script that tickles the same bug!
 Good
 luck :)
