String "delete" method does not remove some characters from input string
This bug affects all Ruby versions I tried, i.e. 2.0.0 and 2.1.4 on Windows and 2.1.5 on Linux
In some cases the String "delete" method does not remove all the characters from the input string I ask for removal.
The problem seems to depend on the string passed as argument to the delete method and on the order of its characters.
Please take a look at the simple "irb" dump below:
irb(main):001:0> str = 'A-B'
irb(main):002:0> str.delete ' -#'
irb(main):003:0> str.delete ' #-'
If I try to remove the dash from string 'A-B' passing ' -#' to the delete method, it does not work.
If I change the order of the characters passed to the delete method, the result is correct.
The attached Ruby program shows the above problem.
