Hi,

Testing with ruby 1.8.6 (2008-03-03 patchlevel 114) [x86_64-linux], this:

def grow
  for i in 1..100
    eval "b#{i}=1"
  end
end
15000.times {grow}

...seems to cause linear process growth with according to how many
assignments are done.

Is this a bug or is it in some way (that I didn't notice) explicable?

regards,
Stephen Sykes
