Issue #10290 has been updated by John Backus.


Any update on this issue? I ran into this bug yesterday and spent hours investigating the source of the segfault. Here is the code that caused the issue for me:

```
def foo
  define_singleton_method(:method_missing)          { |*| invalid_method }
  define_singleton_method(:define_singleton_method) { |*| invalid_method }
end

foo

begin
  do_not_segfault
rescue SystemStackError
end

do_not_segfault
```

The following code segfaults on Ruby 2.1.3:
