Bug #4644: DateTime.new does not work with Float
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/4644

Author: Stefan Radomski
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: lib
Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 1.8.7 (2011-02-18 patchlevel 334) [x86_64-linux]


When initializing a DateTime object, one can pass seconds as Floats, like 5.5. The decimals get added to sec_fraction. This works great in Ruby 1.9, but not in 1.8.
It fails in Line 527 of the "date.rb":http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-18/repository/entry/lib/date.rb#L527 with the message "NoMethodError: undefined method `to_r' for 7325.5:Float".
