Awhile back I talked about an issue (and workaround) regarding how Name#to_a worked in Ruby 1.9.3p0 and earlier. I’m happy to report that my patch was accepted (and rewritten by core devs to be better!) and subsequently backported to Ruby 1.9.3. That fix was released as part of the 1.9.3-p125 release in February. Pretty quick turnaround!
