ruby 1.9.3p217 (2012-05-18 revision 35702) [x86_64-darwin10.8.0] (1.8 seems the same)

class C
  def self.allocate
    Kernel.exit(1)
  end
end

C.new # => <C:...

C.allocate # terminates process

Expected C.new call to invoke allocate, see here: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/trunk/object.c#L1697
