 Hello everyone,
 there is a bug introduced with p392 in parsing special characters with
 REXML.
 Here is the sample code to reproduce the bug:
 
 
 REXML::Text.unnormalize('&')
 
 
 it produces following error:
 
 
 NameError: uninitialized constant REXML::Text::Document
         from
 /home/ubuntu/.rbenv/versions/1.9.3-p392/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rexml/text.rb:386:in
 `block in unnormalize'
         from
 /home/ubuntu/.rbenv/versions/1.9.3-p392/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rexml/text.rb:384:in
 `gsub'
         from
 /home/ubuntu/.rbenv/versions/1.9.3-p392/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rexml/text.rb:384:in
 `unnormalize'
         from (irb):6
 
 
 the workaround is to require "rexml/document" manually, but since its being
 referenced from REXML::Text it should be required there.
 
 
 Thank you and best regards,
 Robert
