Description Will Benton 2009-10-22 16:55:39 UTC
Created attachment 365757 [details]
short example program that crashes ruby 1.8.6 in F11 and F12 beta

Description of problem:

The ruby interpreter crashes when executing code that refers to an unqualified constant name if this code is contained in some method that has been added to a particular object (either via "def obj.meth" or via a def from within a "class << obj").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.8.6  (under both F11 and F12 beta)

How reproducible:

Run the attached code.
  
Actual results:

The ruby interpreter segfaults at the first reference to a constant from within the "declare" method.

Expected results:

Programs, even those that contain syntactic or semantic errors, should execute without crashing the ruby interpreter.  (This particular case works in ruby 1.8.5 on RHEL 5.4.)
