This isn’t a ArachnoRuby thing persay, but it applies to any
up and coming ruby IDE… how would you as the user expect
the IDE to take you to a class definition, if the class
itself is defined/opened in multiple files?

I never said it would be easy. :wink:
SlickEdit pops a dialog where you can pick the appropriate instance if
there are multiple matches.
In C++, definition vs. implementation for e.g.

In the case of Ruby, if there was only one class XXX reference, it
should simply jump there.
If the class was re-opened and referenced multiple times, it could just
show the different locations where it was referenced and let you choose.
