cygwin Tcl oddity




$ tclsh 
% puts [expr 2+2] 
4 
% puts [expr 2.0+2.0] 

(hangs, should return 4.0)

$ which tclsh 
/usr/bin/tclsh

info tclversion returns 8.6, of course (8.6.8-1)
Linux tclsh doesn't have this issue.

This is on 32-bit cygwin; 64-bit cygwin seems a bit more robust,
but if you keep asking it to sum and print floating point nos at
the command line, it seems to hang eventually as well.

Ideas?
