Bug #9244: unexpected behaviour of 'require' when $LOAD_PATH gets changed
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9244#change-43624

ruby -v: 1.9.3p484, 2.0.0p353
Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


=begin
For the purpose of reproducing the error, let's assume that I have two folders ((%a/%)) and ((%b/%)) which both contain a file ((%test.rb%))

In the following script, ((%b/test.rb%)) will NOT get loaded:

 $LOAD_PATH.unshift File.join(Dir.pwd, 'a')
 require 'test.rb'
 $LOAD_PATH.unshift File.join(Dir.pwd, 'b')
 require 'test.rb'
=end

I would have expected this behaviour before, when required files were not registered through their absolute paths in $LOADED_FEATURES. Right now, I find it confusing.
