Cannot pp DelegateClass derived classes: undefined method `inspect' NameError

[ruby-core:25804]

Description

=begin
pp derived_from_delegate_class fails with a NameError under 1.9.1, apparently unable to find the method #inspect(), though a direct call to that method works fine:

=== begin ===
require 'delegate'
require 'pp'

class A < DelegateClass(Array); end

puts "ruby-#{RUBY_VERSION}-p#{RUBY_PATCHLEVEL} (#{RUBY_PLATFORM})"
puts A.new([]).inspect
pp A.new([])
=== end ===

=begin
This is also a problem unit testing anything derived from DelegateClass: AssertionMessage.delayed_diff calls a method, convert(), which may call pp, meaning that something as simple as:

assert_equal [1,2,3], array_like_derived_from_delegateclass

will fail with an internal NameError (!).
