I was trying to do some remote bugsquashing by SSHing on a Windows
running the Cygwin sshd. It’s a clean Cygwin ruby setup, with the
required for Rails, and the SQLite3 Driver compiled with gcc 3.4.4
special), which seems to fallback to the DL driver after I hacked api.rb
recognize cygwin as a host.
Whatever Rails is doing to connect to the database, it threw a can’t
exception or some such. I then tried to recreate that in “irb”, and got
(I edited some gruesome gemspec dum spam from the log)
irb(main):001:0> require ‘rubygems’
irb(main):002:0> 'require require ‘sqlite3’
irb(main):003:0> require ‘irb/omp completion’
irb(main):004:0> require ‘pp’
irb(main):005:0> pp SQLite3. ::Database.new ’ ‘production.sqlitwe
#< … >,
@handle=#<DL::PtrData:0x0x102a2430 ptr=0x0x6803430 size=0 free=0x0x0>,
I didn’t test if this DB handle actually worked. The next ones I created
another session looked perfectly normal.
Is this just a really, really weird coinkydink related to my obscure
where some DLLs seem to clash and cause strange interpreter states, or
be considered a proper bug in one of the parties involved?
