Backport #2563

Segmentation fault using module_eval

Added by jcf (James Conroy-Finn) about 9 years ago. Updated almost 8 years ago.



I'm running Ruby 1.9.1p376, built from source using RVM on Mac OS X (10.6.2). When executing github clone user/repo I get a reproducible seg fault.

Here's the stack trace…

/Users/jcf/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.1-p376/gems/github-0.4.1/lib/github/extensions.rb:11: warning: undefining `object_id' may cause serious problem
