Similar previous objects are parsed correctly.
This is the last object in the file.
There are no tabs, contains only \n as linefeeds.

ruby 1.9.3p0 (2011-10-30) [i386-mingw32]

Works in rubies 1.8.[4,6,7] and 1.9.1.

I suspect it is @gc, not :cmd_gc:

% ruby19 -rpsych -ryaml -e ‘p YAML.dump(:cmd => :cmd_gc)’
“—\n:cmd: :cmd_gc\n”

% ruby19 -rpsych -ryaml -e ‘p YAML.dump(:cmd => “@gc”)’
“—\n:cmd: ! ‘@gc’\n”
