Issue #17849 has been updated by mame (Yusuke Endoh).


Just FYI. According to @ko1, masking all exceptions in an ensure clause is =
possible in pure Ruby, as long as you use MRI.

```
begin
  ...
ensure
  Thread.handle_interrupt(Object =3D> :never) do
    ..
  end
end
```

No interrupt checking is executed outside of handle_interrupt block. This i=
s an implementation detail of MRI, though.

Note: we don't insist that people should write such messy code for all ensu=
re clauses. It may be just useful to perform a proof-of-concept of this pro=
posal, whether it is practically possible to implement a global timeout.
