Bug #8153: Problems with Enumerable#zip caused by overriding Object#respond_to?

If I override Object#respond_to? under Ruby 2.0.0, Enumerable#zip begins to misbehave.  Here is the code and output in Ruby 2.0.0:

2.0.0p0 :001 > RUBY_VERSION
 => "2.0.0"
2.0.0p0 :002 >  class Object
2.0.0p0 :003?>       alias :_respond_to? :respond_to?
2.0.0p0 :004?>       def respond_to?(*a)
2.0.0p0 :005?>           _respond_to?(*a)
2.0.0p0 :006?>         end
2.0.0p0 :007?>     end
 => nil
2.0.0p0 :008 > [1,2,3].zip((1..3).each)
 => [[1, nil], [2, nil], [3, nil]]

Should be: [[1, 1], [2, 2], [3, 3]]

Here is the output I was expecting, generated in Ruby 1.9.3 -- ruby 1.9.3p392 (2013-02-22 revision 39386) [x86_64-darwin12.2.0]:

1.9.3p392 :001 > RUBY_VERSION
 => "1.9.3"
1.9.3p392 :002 >  class Object
1.9.3p392 :003?>       alias :_respond_to? :respond_to?
1.9.3p392 :004?>       def respond_to?(*a)
1.9.3p392 :005?>           _respond_to?(*a)
1.9.3p392 :006?>         end
1.9.3p392 :007?>     end
 => nil
1.9.3p392 :008 > [1,2,3].zip((1..3).each)
 => [[1, 1], [2, 2], [3, 3]]
1.9.3p392 :009 >

I'm not certain if this is the only method which is interfered with, but it's how I determined an issue was present initially.

For copy and paste convenience:

class Object
    alias :_respond_to? :respond_to?
    def respond_to?(*a)
      _respond_to?(*a)
    end
end

[1,2,3].zip((1..3).each)

FWIW, the same behaviour occurs if using a prepend-ed module and super:

  module RespondToBug
    def respond_to?(*a)
      super
    end
  end

  class Object
    prepend RespondToBug
  end
