Bug in 1.8.7-p249, the version shipped with Ubuntu 10.04

I recently upgraded from 1.8.7-p72 to 1.8.7-p249 and a piece of code
that I had long relied on stopped working. Here is an example of the
issue:

class X
def q; “q”; end
end

class Y < X
def q
f do
super()
end
end
def f(&b)
b.call
end
end

y = Y.new
y.q

NoMethodError: super called outside of method
from (irb):7
from (irb):11:in call' from (irb):11:inf’
from (irb):6:in `q’
from (irb):15

I tried this on 1.9.2 and it works so I am assuming this is a bug with
p249?

Yes and fixed already. Try a newer patchlevel.

Thanks. I was hoping the Debian/Ubuntu package maintainer would get
wind of it by posting it to ruby-talk.

Interestingly I was looking for someone to contact and came across
this blog post.

Would you mind reporting this as a bug on
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ruby1.8 ?

I’ll try to take it from there.
