Description Dmitry A. Ustalov 2008-07-11 16:56:56 UTC
On a number of unexplained causes, launching the simplest program written in 
ruby/tk, leads to crashing ruby.

For example:
eveel{~}% cat ruby-tk-ex3.rb 
require 'tk'
root = { title "Ex3" }
top = { relief 'raised'; border 5 }
lbl = do
  justify 'center'
  text    'Hello, World!'
  pack('padx'=>5, 'pady'=>5, 'side' => 'top')
end do
  text "Ok"
  command { exit }
  pack('side'=>'left', 'padx'=>10, 'pady'=>10)
end do
  text "Cancel"
  command { lbl.configure('text'=>"Goodbye, Cruel World!") }
  pack('side'=>'right', 'padx'=>10, 'pady'=>10)
top.pack('fill'=>'both', 'side' =>'top')

eveel{~}% ruby ruby-tk-ex3.rb 
*** glibc detected *** ruby: free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x091f87a0 ***

zsh: abort      ruby ruby-tk-ex3.rb

My system is:
    Fedora release 9 (Sulphur),
    ruby 1.8.6 (2008-06-20 patchlevel 230) [i386-linux],
    tcl 8.5.3, tk 8.5.3,
    glibc 2.8

Also, I've reported about this bug in

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2009-02-02 08:11:39 UTC
This works fine on Fedora 10's ruby-1.8.6-287, can you please confirm?

If it doesn't work still, please reopen the bug.
