Issue #13817 has been updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada).

Description updated
Status changed from Third Party's Issue to Open
Backport changed from 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN to 2.2: REQUIRED, 2.3: REQUIRED, 2.4: REQUIRED

It's a ruby's bug.
"old <<" means a refined method, but it is not redefined actually.

```ruby
class C
  def t; :t; end
  def f; :f; end
end

module M
  refine C do
    alias foo t
  end
end

class C
  alias foo f
end

using M
p C.new.foo #=> :t
```

Bug #13817: test/unit breaks Hash
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13817#change-66215

* Author: rovf (Ronald Fischer)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: ktsj (Kazuki Tsujimoto)
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.4.1p111 (2017-03-22 revision 58053) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.2: REQUIRED, 2.3: REQUIRED, 2.4: REQUIRED
----------------------------------------
Consider the following program:

~~~ruby
#!/usr/bin/env ruby
BEGIN {$VERBOSE = true}
require 'test/unit'
class Hash
  STDERR.puts method_defined?(:<<)
  alias << merge!
  STDERR.puts method_defined?(:<<)
end
~~~

In older Ruby versions (1.9.3, 2.3.3), the output of this program was:

```
false
true
```

In Ruby 2.4.1, the output is

```
false
~/work/stash/vp5/src/test/test_xx.rb:6: warning: method redefined; discarding old <<
true
```

Please note:

1. The warning occurs, even though `method_defined?` tells us that no `<<` method is in `Hash`.
2. The warning disappears, when we do **not** require test/unit, which suggests that the problem is caused by test/unit
3. Changing the offending line to `alias :<< :merge!` does not make any difference
