In fact, the first pronunciation in the dictionary is usually some equivalent of /klouz/. For my part, and based on the experience of those around me, the most common pronunciation does have a /D/ and the /D/-less pronunciation the dictionary prefers actually sounds as weird/sloppy as pronouncing "paths" without the /D~T/. (Actually, having learnt the "standard" pronunciation lacks the /D/, I began omitting it for a few brief while, and it was noticed and criticised.) -- Tristan.
