  I just upgraded to the same configuration a few days ago, so I can try to
reproduce and fix this problem. (after I make a work deadline this week...)

  DejaGnu in lib/framework.exp implements an unknown{} proc, to trap Tcl
procedures that don't exist. I'd guess I'd either have to modify this
proc to do the autoloading, or remove it altogether. It's left from all
the ancient versions of Tcl from 10 years ago when DejaGnu was a new
program, long before autoloading existed.
