It might be a bug too.

The documentation of Binding should not justify the behavior of refinements,
because it was written before refinements are introduced into Ruby.

The original version of refinements are designed to be a more dynamic feature,
but it was changed to be more static to avoid confusion caused by implicit
refinement activation.

I'd like to hear Matz's opinion.

Bug #10818: Extrange behaviour when apliying a refinement inside eval
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10818#change-51379

* Author: Pablo Herrero
* Status: Assigned
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Yukihiro Matsumoto
* ruby -v: ruby 2.2.0p0 (2014-12-25 revision 49005) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
When you activate a refinement inside an a string using `eval` with a binding, the refinement is sill active the next time you call `eval` with the same binding.
Strangely enough, this will only happen if there is an assignment at the code evaluated the first time. If you delete the assignment everything works as expected.

```ruby
module M
  refine String do
    def foobar; puts 'foobar'; end
  end
end

some_binding = class A; binding; end


str1 = <<EOF
a = 'something' # Without this everything works as expected
using M
'str'.foobar # Works fine
EOF

str2 = <<EOF
'str'.foobar # This time should fail but it doesn't
EOF

eval str1, some_binding
eval str2, some_binding
```

Acording to the [RefinmentsSpec](https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-trunk/wiki/RefinementsSpec): "when main.using is invoked in a string given as the first argument of Kernel#eval, Kernel#instance_eval, or Module#module_eval, the end of the scope is the end of the string."

Which contradicts with this code's behavior.
