 actually, what adam points out was the xotcl behavior before 1.3.*. Earlier
 versions used always the current namespace for instprocs/procs, 
 which is different from the standard tcl behavior, and has as well 
 some more disadvantages for packages.

 The bug that Michael Heca came up with (alloc bug) was a consequence
 of changing the old behavior. The exists bug that  Attila came up with was 
 in since the first xotcl versions. 

 All these issues are solved in the current testing version. We have
 still one complex issue to double check; if everything goes well, we
 should be able to release 1.3.3 next week.
