DRb client fails when calling out-of-process remote method with a block
See attached code for test case.
applies to ruby-2.3.1 and ruby-2.4.0dev (2016-08-24 trunk 55999)
The problem starts in DRbObject#method_missing where
the code following DRb.here? is used for the in-process case which works.
But the code in the block for
succ, result = self.class.with_friend(uri (Uri Gorelik)) do
is used for the out-of-process case. Here, DrbMessage#send_request fails
because b is a Proc, and in DrbMessage#dump the call to make_proxy fails
because DRbObject.new(b) fails.

This is a bug in your code, you are not calling
DRb.start_service in the client program. The client program needs a DRb server running in order to handle the sending-block-to-remote-method case. See the example in the "Client code" section of the
DRb module rdoc.
