Description

expected:

head :001 > Process.spawn({FOO: "bar"}, "bash")
 => 13479 

got in reality:

head :001 > Process.spawn({FOO: "bar"}, "bash")
TypeError: no implicit conversion of Symbol into String
...

when I pass {"FOO" => "bar"} as first parameter, everything works as expected. It would be nice though to have possibility to pass Hash with symbols as parameter (or, at least mention in documentation http://ruby-doc.org//core-2.2.0/Process.html#method-c-spawn that env hash cannot have symbols as keys)
