Issue #11953 has been updated by Noah Gibbs.


Okay, Prime removed its .new() method. Singleton appears to depend on .new(). It's getting the recursive synch because the deprecated new() is calling instance(), so it would recurse infinitely. But instead, it tries to grab its own mutex and dies that way.

Bug #11953: ThreadError in 2.3 on code that works on 2.2.4
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11953#change-59056

* Author: Clayton Flesher

----------------------------------------
This is my first bug reporting, so I'm sorry if this isn't exactly correct format. I'll update my report accordingly if pointed in the right direction.

I ran into what appears to be a bug while doing a quiz.

I've included the breaking code, the test suite and the description of the quiz as attachments to this bug report.

The following code works fine on Ruby 2.2.4.

```ruby
class Prime
  def self.nth(num)
    error(num)
    primes = build_primes(num)
    primes.last
  end

  private

  def build_primes(num)
    primes = [2]
    index  = 3 
    until primes.size == num
      if example?(index, primes)
        primes << index
      end
      index += 1
    end
    primes
  end

  def error(num)
    unless num > 0
      raise ArgumentError
    end
  end

  def example?(index, primes)
    primes.each do |prime|
      if index % prime == 0
        return false
      end
    end
    true
  end
end
```

It raises this error in Ruby 2.3.0

```
ThreadError: deadlock; recursive locking
    /home/clayton/.rubies/ruby-2.3.0/lib/ruby/2.3.0/singleton.rb:140:in `synchronize'
    /home/clayton/.rubies/ruby-2.3.0/lib/ruby/2.3.0/singleton.rb:140:in `instance'
    /home/clayton/.rubies/ruby-2.3.0/lib/ruby/2.3.0/singleton.rb:142:in `block in instance'

    /home/clayton/exercism/ruby/nth-prime/nth_prime.rb:3:in `nth'
    nth_prime_test.rb:28:in `test_first'
```

If this is expected behavior, I'm sorry in advance for wasting your time.
