Issue #11953 has been updated by Marc-Andre Lafortune.

Assignee set to Marc-Andre Lafortune

Hi.

> this is happening in code that doesn't define new

I'm sorry if I'm missing something, but could you please provide such code?

Lines 12-15 of `nth_prime_test.rb` defines an instance method called `new`, and James also defines `new` in his code.

> Just calling Prime.instance() first wouldn't help

Did you actually try? Inserting `Prime.instance` in `nth_prime_test.rb` after the require doesn't produce the error

> Part of the problem is that Prime.new is an old deprecated interface that users used to use and now shouldn't

FWIW, Prime.new was deprecated in Ruby 1.9.0, more than 7 years ago. Are there examples of users still calling it?

Bug #11953: ThreadError in 2.3 on code that works on 2.2.4
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11953#change-59091

* Author: Clayton Flesher
* Status: Open

* ruby -v: 2.3.0
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
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/.rubies/ruby-2.3.0/lib/ruby/2.3.0/singleton.rb:140: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.
