I think it's to spec that it doesn't call `to_a`.

----------------------------------------
Bug #6155: Enumerable::Lazy#flat_map raises an exception when an element does not respond to #each

The following statement will raise "NoMethodError: undefined method `each' for 1:Fixnum":

  [1, 2, 3].lazy.flat_map { |n| n }.to_a

It appears as if Enumerable::Lazy#flat_map is calling #each on every element, regardless of whether it can work or not.

As a reference, the equivalent statement using Enumerable#flat_map works:

  [1, 2, 3].flat_map { |n| n }.to_a
