What version of tclsh are you running from the command line? Is it also 8.3.2? Also, if you use the tcl command time command, you can get better granularity than exec'ing date.

Using a modified version of your test:

time {  
       set counter 0
       while { $counter < 1000000 } {
           incr counter
       } 
} 10
and inside a proc:
proc time_loop_speed {} {
    time {  
           set counter 0
           while { $counter < 1000000 } {
               incr counter
           } 
    } 10
}
I got the following results (P3-500, RH 6.2):
 inlineproc
tclsh 8.3.23309115 ms per iteration2934595 ms per iteration
AOLserver 3.2+ad12, nsd8x6607447 ms per iteration5637806 ms per iteration
Of course, it's not really an apples-to-apples comparison because tclsh is not threaded, while nsd8x is.
