Gijs checked in fixes in yesterday ...and i worked hard to make a new release
srs4.08 ...I tested the tcl clients and they seem to work with features now.
if you want to get the fixes without installing SRS4.08 (has very few 
changes otherwise) just copy all *.tcl files from the srs/tcl directory

good luck!
