----------------------------------------
Bug #14407: defined? still returning true for top-level constant when referenced with scope
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14407#change-70671

* Author: grzuy (Gonzalo Rodriguez)
* Status: Closed
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.5.0
* Backport: 2.3: DONTNEED, 2.4: DONTNEED, 2.5: DONE
----------------------------------------
~~~ ruby
class A
end

class B
end

if defined?(A::B)
  puts "defined"

  puts A::B
else
  puts "not defined"
end
~~~


When running this script with ruby 2.5.0 i get:

~~~
defined
Traceback (most recent call last):
test.rb:10:in `<main>': uninitialized constant A::B (NameError)
Did you mean?  B
~~~

while my expectation was that after the top-level constant lookup was removed from ruby 2.5, defined? would return false and i would actually get 

~~~
not defined
~~~

as output
