Comment(by martinlagardette@…):

 The problem comes from the fact that the `-copy` selector is overridden on
 NSObject by Rake, which causes some problems when comes the time to handle
 exceptions. Because we use Obj-C exceptions and some Obj-C methods, some
 `-copy` messages are sent to the object, which goes through the MacRuby-
 defined `-copy` implementation, instead of the original implementation.

 What this means is that whenever rake and exceptions are involved and it
 crashes, you can be sure the reason is this bug :D (#839 and #840 deal
 with exceptions with rake, and they are duplicate of this bug).
