Bug #13264: Binding#irb does not work in context of frozen object
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13264

* Author: Jan Lelis
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.4.0p0 (2016-12-24 revision 57164) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
This works as expected (starts IRB):

```
$ ruby -r irb -e '"".instance_eval{ binding.irb }'
```

This throws an error:

```
$ ruby -r irb -e '"".freeze.instance_eval{ binding.irb }'
```

```
/home/jan/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.4.0/lib/ruby/2.4.0/irb/extend-command.rb:199:in `extend_object': can't define singleton (TypeError)

	from -e:1:in `instance_eval'
	from -e:1:in `<main>'
```

Also fails, but slightly different error:

```
ruby -r irb -e 'Object.new.freeze.instance_eval{ binding.irb }'
```
