I do not think, Tcl_Init can (officially) be called after Tcl_Finalize. The 
function is meant only for situations, when libtcl (or a shared library using 
it) is itself being unloaded (think dlclose()).

I don't see, why Tcl would be initialized in the main process. If it is, that's, 
probably, a bug in itself.

But I'll await a response from mod_rivet maintainers.
