 I just joined this list to get this help. I am seeing this behaviour.
It is giving lot of inconvenience to me. I want to know if it is a bug
or not -?.
 In short, if I have a children object as the same name as parent
object's proc/instproc . The parent object's method is not getting called.
 Here is a sample code.

  Object a 
  Object a proc name {} {
   return "I am valli"
  a name          # returns "I am valli"
  Object a::name  # Child object with same name as the proc
  a name          # returns  ::a::name and not the previous message

 Is this the desired behaviour. Is there any workaround.
