Issue #5828 has been updated by Andrew Grimm.


I'm happy for this bug to be closed, as I don't have a need to freeze and clone a class.

If you assign a class to a constant (that is, it isn't anonymous), and you freeze it and then clone it, you can't call to_s on it.

    MyClass = Class.new ; MyClass.freeze.clone.to_s
    RuntimeError: can't modify frozen Class
    	from (irb):1:in `to_s'
    	from (irb):1
    	from /Users/agrimm/.rvm/rubies/ruby-head/bin/irb:16:in `<main>'

    MyConstantObject = Object.new ; MyConstantObject.freeze.clone.to_s # => "#<Object:0x00000100884d60>"
    MyClass_2 = Class.new ; MyClass_2.clone.to_s # => "#<Class:0x00000100872930>"
    MyClass_3 = Class.new ; MyClass_3.freeze.to_s # => "MyClass_3" 
    MyClass_4 = Class.new.freeze ; MyClass_4.clone.to_s # => "#<Class:0x0000010088d4d8>" 
    MyClass_5 = Class.new.freeze ; MyClass_5.freeze.clone.to_s # => An exception
    local_variable_class = Class.new ; local_variable_class.freeze.clone.to_s # => "#<Class:0x00000100964028>" 

Presumably this is caused by class only determining whether it's assigned to a constant when it's first inspected.

I don't have a use case for freezing and cloning a class.
