Problem with entry widget in 3.99.1

I just built and installed 3.99.1 under Solaris 2.5.1, and the following
script works under 3.1.1 but not 3.99.1

  (define s "hi there")
  (pack (entry '.e :textvariable 's))

Under 3.1.1 the entry widget displays "hi there" and allows me to edit the
string -- and if the variable s is changed, that change is reflected in the
entry widget.

Under 3.99.1 the widget displays "s" and doesn't allow it to be changed.

What did I do wrong?
