“Does anyone know about recent changes to Ruby 1.8.6 garbage collection?”
We’re seeing a strange test failure on one of our CI boxes:
[BUG] object allocation during garbage collection phase ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11) [i686-linux]
ruby -v gives this:
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287) [i686-linux]
On the developer’s OSX machine, which doesn’t experience this bug, ruby -v gives:
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-03-03 patchlevel 114) [universal-darwin9.0]
There have apparently been changes to garbage collection in 1.8.7 and
1.9 — does anyone know if these have been backported to 1.8.6
somewhere between patchlevels 114 and 287?
