I don't know how I can help the project here since this is my first time to report a bug, but let me know if you would like me to do something. Thanks!


#1 [ruby-core:45862] Updated by Eric Hodel over 4 years ago

You have many C extensions loaded, one of these may be causing the crash. Can you reproduce this crash without loading so many extensions? I see pg, hpricot, bson_ext, ruby-prof, nokogiri, bcrypt-ruby, gherkin, eventmachine.

Can you reproduce it with capybara-webkit and no other C extensions?

Can you reproduce it without any C extensions?

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

The C level stack trace says someone gives Ruby a broken array.
Anyone can make a small reproducible code?

#3 [ruby-core:46531] Updated by Yuki Nishijima over 4 years ago

sorry for my late reply.

It was a bit difficult for me to reproduce this problem with a minimal set of code, and haven't found the one which gives a broken array.
Anyone can reproduce this?

#4 [ruby-core:48779] Updated by Yusuke Endoh about 4 years ago

At least, we need your whole source code to reproduce. Can you provide?

  • Category set to lib
  • Status changed from Feedback to Rejected

No feedback that allows us to reproduce this so I'm rejecting it.
