Tcl - Xtclsh is not responding and there is no % at the prompt

Description

The xtclsh shell is not responding and there is no % at the prompt. What is wrong and why am I seeing this?

Solution

This issue occurs when a xtclsh is launched from within another xtclsh shell. This is not supported and should not be done.

You can see this behavior if you type 'exec xtclsh' into an already running xtclsh shell or if you xtclsh in the Tcl Console within Project Navigator.
