[Xotcl] Non-pos arguments with args

I am having difficulty getting non-positional arguments to behave correctly
with args.  The simple example below shows what I have found.  This does not
appear to be appropriate behavior.  Am I doing something wrong?


Object obj

obj proc pr1 { {-npos default} args } {

    puts "npos: $npos"

    puts "args: $args"



> ## This works:

> obj pr1 a

npos: default

args: a


> ## As does this:

> obj pr1 -npos 3 a

npos: 3

args: a


> ## But this does not:

> obj pr1 -npos 3

npos: 3

args: -npos 3


> ## I expected args to be {}, but instead it contains the non-positional


Thanks for any insight you can provide.
