The issues with execution traces
properly dealing with the
TCL_EVAL_* flag values are much
more difficult to address, and
they're really orthogonal to
the new [namespace unknown]
command.

Revised patch is limited to
fixing [namespace unknown] bugs.
A separate bug report will be
filed for the trace issues.

Updated patch includes more
[namespace unknown] tests
that illustrate the bugs fixed
by the supplemental patch.

please review.

still needs trace tests.

Attaching supplemental patch
addressing these issues.

I won't commit this until I
construct tests for the test
suite that demo its effects.

I wasn't sure about bumping the refcounts of the other
elements of the unknownHandler. The safest thing to do would
be to put the increments in. 

Regarding TCL_EVAL_DIRECT/GLOBAL, I'm not sure what is the
correct behaviour with these flags. The current code was a
best guess based on what was already there. Certainly, it
could stand some reviewing.

You are correct that the unknown handler cannot possibly be
anything other than a valid list (or NULL). The check can be
changed to a panic, or removed entirely.

When the elements of the 
unknownHandlerPtr are retrieved
within TclEvalObjvInternal, there's
a check for valid list, and return
of TCL_ERROR if not.

This should not be possible.  Valid
list checks are done during storage
of the handler value.  I think it
would be better either to not check
for the error condition, or to check
and react to it with a Tcl_Panic.

As is, I think the error message
and ::errorInfo would not be helpful
at all.

while merging with dgp-refactor
branch, the question arose whether
this patch is properly handling
the TCL_EVAL_INVOKE and/or
TCL_EVAL_GLOBAL cases.  Needs a
careful check, and possibly new
tests.

In the routine TclEvalObjvInternal,
the Tcl_Obj's newObjv[1] through
newObjv[handlerObj-1] do not have
their refcounts bumped before the
recursive call to TEOI.  Looks unsafe
to me.

Fixed bug in the patch where Tcl_NamespaceDelete was
decrementing the reference count on the unknownHandlerPtr of
the namespace but not then setting it to NULL. This resulted
in a later double free and possible segmentation fault under
certain conditions, such as those produced by
autoMkindex.test. Added a new test for this condition.
Thanks to Donald Porter for pointing out problem.
tip181-6.patch is the latest.

Latest patch tip181-4.patch will hopefully be the last -- now includes 
documentation and C-API (+stubs etc). Passes test-suite.
