Issue #9915 has been updated by Jack Nagel.


It looks like r42060 should be backported to 2.0.0.

Bug #9915: Encoding error when inspecting an array containing Pathname withUTF-8 characters
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9915#change-47109

* Author: Jack Nagel

* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.0.0p451 (2014-02-24 revision 45167) [universal.x86_64-darwin13]
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
Given:

```
$ locale
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"
$ cat t.rb
# encoding: UTF-8
require "pathname"
puts [Pathname.new("QQ.app")].inspect
```

this script produces the following on Ruby 1.9.3:

```
[#<Pathname:QQ.app>]
```

on Ruby 2.0.0:

```
t.rb:3:in `inspect': inspected result must be ASCII only or use the same encoding with default external (Encoding::CompatibilityError)
	from t.rb:3:in `<main>'
```

and on Ruby 2.1.1:

```
[#<Pathname:QQ.app>]
```

I believe Ruby 2.0.0 should produce the same result as 1.9.3 and 2.1.1.
