Bug #4438: rescue args type check omitted
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/4438

Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3dev (2011-02-23 trunk 30945) [x86_64-linux]


Rescue arg must be class or module in 1.8. 1.9 looks to ignore when it's not a class or module.

Is this expected behavior?

 0% ruby -ve 'begin; raise; rescue nil; end'
 ruby 1.9.3dev (2011-02-23 trunk 30945) [x86_64-linux]
 -e:1:in `<main>': unhandled exception
 1% ruby187 -ve 'begin; raise; rescue nil; end'
 ruby 1.8.7 (2010-12-23 patchlevel 330) [x86_64-linux]
 -e:1: class or module required for rescue clause (TypeError)
