When I'm creating interpreters in my code using "interp create int" command at some point I'm receiving error somewhere around 500-700th interp (depends on version of tclkit used):
<div style="background-color: #fff8f8; border: 1px solid #c0a0a0; white-space: pre; width: 300px; padding: 5px;">can't read "::argv": no such variable
    while executing
"lindex $::argv 0"
    (procedure "tclKitPreInit" line 20)
    invoked from within
    invoked from within
"interp create int$i"
It happens only with x86 version. When I tested version x64 I haven't manage to see this error. Maybe it happens much later, with more interpreters created.
