Extending a class changes from 1.8.4 to 1.8.6


#1

require ‘date’
class MyDateTime < DateTime end

under ruby 1.8.4:
MyDateTime.now.class -> MyDateTime

under ruby 1.8.6
MyDateTime.now.class -> DateTime

I feel like I missed the boat on something obvious here. I googled
around a bit though and didn’t see anything and I have a mission
critical issue that I need to resolve.

Thanks in advance!

I suppose I should actually ask a question with that:-)

What do I need to do to get the 1.8.4 behavior in 1.8.6?

Thanks!

I suggest looking at lib/date.rb, particularly at Date.now and
Time.now.to_datetime. The rest might depend on your usage.
