----------------------------------------
Feature #9147: CSV.new option skip_lines should escape String before convert to Regexp
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9147#change-44811

----------------------------------------
After r43823, the following script ignore all lines.

== test_csv.rb ==
require "csv"

csv = CSV.new(<<-EOL, skip_lines: ".")
1,foo
.2,bar
3,baz
EOL

p csv.each.to_a # => []
=================

I think String value for skip_lines option should be escaped before convert to Regexp.
