I know almost nothing about tcl/expect so I have no idea why did this

The child Expect process is exiting unexpectedly while running test cases. When the parent later attempts to issue a command ({exp_send "interp delete test_case"} means type "interp delete test_case" at the child Expect's prompt), Expect notices that the channel has been closed and throws a Tcl error ("spawn id EXPN not open"). The new Tcl error handling in DejaGnu 1.6.3 catches and records this error, then repeats it after the test run to ensure that you notice that something went very wrong.

This is suspiciously similar to a previous bug report that I have been unable to replicate. Please attach the "runtest.log" file to a reply, as it will have more details that might help me to understand this issue.
