Issue #174 has been updated by Arthur Schreiber.


That is definately a bug, as earlier Ruby 1.8.6 patchlevels showed
exactly the same behaviour as 1.8.7:

VERSION = 1.8.6-p111:

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ""

VERSION = 1.8.6-p114

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ""

VERSION = 1.8.6-p166

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ""

VERSION = 1.8.6-p222

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ".profile"

VERSION = 1.8.7-p17

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ""

VERSION = 1.8.7-p7

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ""

VERSION = 1.8.7

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".profile")
=> ""
