The issue is with
The same issue occurs with Dir, Tempfile, IO objects, the ENV hash. StringIO and CSV have this problem too. Sockets I think have the issue.
For example, the issue with StringIO is that it needs an initialize_clone method that dup's the string. The underlying issue, though, is that it's a TypedData and doesn't
store its internals in instance variables to be checked by the sharing logic.
require 'stringio' str = "string".dup stringio = StringIO.new(str) rs = 100.times.map do Ractor.new do strio = receive p strio.string.object_id p strio.string.frozen? end end p stringio.string.object_id rs.each do |r| r.send(stringio) end rs.each(&:take)
