IronRuby hosting: self becomes nil


#1

Hello,

I get very odd results with attached code:


#System::Windows::Forms::Form:0x000005c
nil
#System::Windows::Forms::Form:0x000005e


While was expected


#System::Windows::Forms::Form:0x000005c
#System::Windows::Forms::Form:0x000005c
#System::Windows::Forms::Form:0x000005e


The ‘nil’ is printed by this expression:
form = form.test

and the test method definition is:

class Object
def test
p self
end
end

The hint: ‘form’ variable was set by the script host (SetVariable).

I am using DLR-0.9.

Thanks,
