Eggheads: news.tcl bug

Server has been upgraded to kernel 2.4.18 and tcl 8.3.3.  When running this
news.tcl that worked on systems prior to this and still does (meaning lower
kernel/tcl version) , and doing the command below...

<gjones> !news top (or actually anything with !news command)

I get this error...

<JuGs> [09:57] Tcl error [news]: called "putchan" with too many arguments

URL below to copy of the tcl, does anyone mind taking quick peak at it to
see what is wrong?  Maybe the tcl currently installed causes the tcl to fail
due to changes or something?

Thanks for any help ahead of time,
