Bug #3585

The "p" method is printing a string twice when using threads.

ruby -v:
r28630 darwin


When I run this code:

 t = { sleep 3 } { sleep 2; t.kill; p 'hi!' }

I would expect "hi!" to be printed once. But, when I put the code in a file and run it with ruby somefile.rb, "hi!" gets printed twice. This does not happen if I just type ruby and paste the code in and press Control-D. I posted a question on StackOverflow about it ( ). The person who commented said that they got it too. My ruby -v is ruby 1.9.1p378 (2010-01-10 revision 26273) [i386-darwin10], and the other person who experienced it said that they have ruby 1.9.3dev (2010-07-19 trunk 28679) [x86_64-darwin10.4.0].
