What's going on here? (weird Ruby 1.9 incompatibility)

class A
def a
‘yay’
end
end

class B
def initialize(&meth)
class << self; self; end.send(:define_method, :b, &meth)
end
end

b = B.new &A.new.method(:a)
p b.b

Ruby 1.8 prints:
“yay”

Ruby 1.9 complains (on the p b.b line):
14:in `’: wrong number of arguments (1 for 0) (ArgumentError)

I tried changing A to have the following definition:

class A
def a(*args)
args
end
end

Now:

Ruby 1.8:
[]

or if you call b.b(1,2,3):
[1,2,3]

Ruby 1.9:
[nil]

or if you call b.b(1,2,3):
[1]

Is this a bug?

I added the output of the arity of the methods, looks very much like a
bug to me, are you familiar with the Bug Reporting process?

ma = A.new.method(:a) p ma.arity # --> 0 b = B.new( &ma ) mb = b.method(:b) p mb.arity # --> 0

p b.b # bombs

You don’t have to. I just fixed, and am going to commit soon between
EURUKO sessions.

Excellent, thank you!

Why not do the same with is_from_method ?
