Description

So if we have this

class A
  define_method :a do
    a
  end
end

and call A.new.a we got SystemStackError
but with alias

class A
  define_method :a do
    a
  end
end

when calling

x=A.new
x.a

in irb or

x=A.new
x.a; x.a

in pry gives

segmentation fault (core dumped)

But ruby -e 'class A; define_method :a do; a; end; end; A.new.a;'
gives segfault randomly
