Rinda::RingServer can't announce locally
Rinda::RingServer#do_reply takes tuples of the form [:lookup_ring, DRbObject]. For remote processes looking for a ring server this works fine as the callback proc in the second slot of the tuple will be a DRbObject.
When a process is looking for a ring server that is local it will never be found. DRb automatically converts a DRbObject to a local reference to reduce overhead, so the second slot of the tuple will be a Proc instance.
A Proc instance does not match DRbObject.
Changing the template to [:lookup_ring, nil] allows the ring server to respond to a local lookup request. This also prevents memory growth in the tuple space as matching arbitrary objects can be removed.
