Bug #2786

Segfault when loading gem

Added by ryanb (Ryan Bates) over 10 years ago. Updated about 9 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.2dev (2010-02-24 trunk 26744) [x86_64-darwin10.0.0]


I am occasionally getting a segfault error when using cucumber 0.6.2 with latest ruby trunk (26744) in Mac OS X 10.6.1. It is happening about 25% of the time I run the cucumber command. Here's the full error:

From that error it looks like it is happening when calling the "gem" method and RubyGems is trying to raise an error when it can't find the gem. This is the line in cucumber (ansicolor.rb).

gem 'genki-ruby-terminfo'

I tried to duplicate this by executing that line in irb. I get a Gem::LoadError saying the gem doesn't exist but never a segfault there.

Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this ticket.

I can confirm this behavior as well with cucumber 0.6.4 and ruby trunk (27310) on Darwin 10.3 (OS X 10.6.3)
