Issue #13223 has been reported by Aaron Patterson.

----------------------------------------
Bug #13223: `File.join` will segv if File::SEPARATOR and File::Separator are set.
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13223

* Author: Aaron Patterson
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.5.0dev (2017-02-17 trunk 57648) [x86_64-darwin16]
* Backport: 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
The program below will crash with a segv:

~~~
File.const_set :Separator, "hello"
File.const_set :SEPARATOR, "hello"

GC.start

File.join "hello", "world"
~~~

This is because the separator object is referenced from a global variable and setting the constants allows the object to be GC'd and the global will go bad.

I've attached a patch that contains a test to demonstrate the problem along with a fix.
