All right! This is great, this kills a whole bunch of non-PASS results.
I have been getting 12 ERRORs on each run in my test bed. My test bed is
all standard released stuff, not sourceware stuff:
I also got 12 ERRORs with tcl 8.3.4 + expect 5.33.0.
I tried the sourceware tcl + sourceware expect + sourceware dejagnu
stack and did not get any ERRORs. That's probably why other people
are not seeing a problem.
I separated out dejagnu -- that is not the problem. I didn't get as far
as figuring out whether the errors come from different tcl or different
expect. I suspect that the difference is in the tcl string parser and
how it quotes stuff. TCL loves to mess with its quoting conventions on
every minor release.

I got those as well, when I tried sourceware tcl + sourceware expect.
Anyways ... I just updated and cranked my test bed. All the ERRORs
and UNRESOLVED's are gone. I am getting that pair of FAILs when
gcc=2.95.3, both dwarf-2 and stabs+. I got no FAILs for gcc=3.*.
