At least I looked into the problem for you in my spare time...

I appologize for the condescending reply. I was tired, and I didn't get
done what I had really wanted to get done last night. As for as
substantiation, It would be really nice if you were to do the same thing I
did, i.e load the CD under some alternative OS, get a complete directory
listing, and then load up Linux and get a complete directory listing, then
massage the two directory listings so they are in the same format, and
then run diff to get a complete list of all missing files, and what
their file names are. Basically, it would be nice to see the problem so
we can do something about it, look for patterns in the directory listing,
check out the source code for things that could cause the problem, etc...
The CDs I tested don't have a problem, therefore I can't investigate the
problem without you doing the leg work, since I have no intention of
going and buying some book on Tcl just to get a (possibly broken) CD so I
can check out the problem.
