Are you thinking of a tcl script that does an "[shell cal]" not knowing where
'cal' is? In my case, this is a script that has a,

#! /bin/sh
exec wish
[tcl-ish things follow]

The script that it executes was added to the tcl path via,

    set auto_path [linsert $auto_path 0 /utils/lib/tkcvs]

So I'm dubious. Plus it's the tcl that ships with cygwin 1 (you might
assume...) Also, I got B20 to run tkdiff out of the box. So... ???
