Issue #9657 has been updated by _ wanabe.

Status changed from Open to Closed

I close the ticket for backporting r45015.

I've confirmed that this issue is solved on trunk, by following code.

require 'bigdecimal'
GC.stress = true
(200..400).each do |i|
  p ** i) * ** i)

Above can cause SEGV without r45015, but can't with it.
(`GC.stress = true` affects `xrealloc()` because of r45653 and r45656.
Thanks to Sasada-san and Nakada-san.)

Bug #9657: Segfault in bigdecimal/util.rb Float#to_d

We're seeing some segfaults with ActiveRecord (rails 4-1-0 branch) when
running on travis ci.

Haven't been able to reproduce yet, but we're seeing about a dozen build
failures until now but still wanted to share it.
Maybe someone with more clue about that stuff has some idea what's going
on and can point in some direction.
