Workaround

To work around it, in the Eggdrop source directory, before compiling:

Open the src/tcl.c file in your editor.

Search for (around line 614)

void do_tcl(char *context, char *script) {
  do_tcl_async(context, script, bgtclcallback);
}

and replace it with

void do_tcl(char *context, char *script) {
  do_tcl_sync(context, script, bgtclcallback, 0);
}


or apply this patch as usual (patch -p1 < timerworkaround.patch).

Then compile the bot.
