It appeared to me for awhile (and this may still be the case) that 
the problem was that I had unpacked things and installed them while 
in OS X. My guess is that StuffIt Expander on OS X has "helpfully" 
reeencoded things along the way. Nonetheless, I cannot reproduce what 
you see, Dominique, with the new TclAE 2.0b10 library, but I do see 
it with the original TclAE 2.0b8. I know I said it shouldn't be 
necessary, but are you sure you've placed the new TclAE.shlb in 
:System:Extensions:Tool Command Language:?

I'm really out of my depth here, so hopefully Daniel can figure out 
how things need to be encoded on all the various platforms.
