I'm not sure if you want this traffic on the list.
I got everything compiled, etc. Ran the command below and captured
the output. As you mentioned, there is a segment fault.
I installed ruby 1.9.1p129 and changed the command below and added a -
t /usr/local/bin/ruby after the -B <config> option and that got the
same run with Ruby 1.9. It has various failures.
The test that faults is:
> The return keyword in a Thread
> - raises a LocalJumpError if used to exit a thread
It passes Ruby 1.9 so I thought I would dig into that test first.
Does that sound good?
