Issue #5170 has been reported by Charlie Savage.

Bug #5170: Date.strptime Segmentation Fault
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5170

Author: Charlie Savage
Status: Open
Priority: High
Assignee: 
Category: core
Target version: 1.9.3
ruby -v: ruby 1.8.7 (2010-12-23 patchlevel 330) [i386-mingw32]


require 'date'
Date.strptime('01-31-2011', '%m/%d/%Y')

This happens on Mingw:

ruby 1.9.3dev (2011-07-28 revision 32716) [i386-mingw32]

It also happens on Linux:

ruby 1.9.3dev (2011-07-31 revision 32789) [x86_64-linux]

This is pretty high priority for us because we need to now use Date.strptime since Date.parse no longer handles US style dates correctly.
