 tcl-8.5.5 has a paragraph that starts out:

 "The Tcl test suite is known to experience failures under certain host
 conditions that are not fully understood. Therefore, test suite failures

 all.tcl:  Total 24296 Passed  23190 Skipped 1106  Failed  0

 is not forgotten.  The question is should we just remove the quoted
