[tkined] SNMP Community defaults

There is a problem with scotty 2.1.10 concerning the community name

In /usr/lib/tkined1.4.10/tkined.defaults I can add entries like:

    snmp.community.HOSTNAME: SNMPCOMM

with HOSTNAME being the name or IP address of a host and COMMNAME
being the community name.

In /usr/lib/tkined1.4.10/apps/library.tcl is a procedure SnmpOpen with
some code dealing with the default communities.

Unfortunately this code does things in an order I consider wrong: It
first sets default community names from tkined.defaults and after that
it overwrites the community names according to the SNMP protocol
version used.

I propose the following patch to cure that problem:
