Issue #17359 has been updated by marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune).


THis was changed to actual traversal and cloning. This way any intermediate object that is shareable is simply shared. Other objects were also not marshalable but can be cloned.

Bug #17359: Ractor copy mode is not Ractor-safe
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/17359#change-88877

* Author: marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: ko1 (Koichi Sasada)
* ruby -v: ruby 3.0.0dev (2020-11-30T10:06:25Z master 89774a938a) [x86_64-darwin18]
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN, 2.7: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
It should not be possible to mutate an object across Ractors, but the copy mode allows it currently:

```ruby
class Foo
  attr_accessor :x

  def initialize_copy(*)
    $last = self
    super
  end
end
o = Foo.new
o.x = 42

r = Ractor.new(o) do |copy|
  puts copy.x # => 42
  Ractor.yield :sync
  Ractor.yield :sync
  puts copy.x # => 666
end
r.take # => :sync
$last.x = 666
r.take # => :sync
r.take
```

Maybe the `copy` object should be marked as moved?
