Issue #14561 has been updated by ioquatix (Samuel Williams).


Thanks so much for your effort to isolate this issue.

I don't think any of my code is violating "First, Fiber.new and Fiber#resume must be in same thread, but Enumerator.new and Enumerator#peek don't have to be."

I will check.

Bug #14561: Consistent 2.5.0 seg fault in GC, related to accessing an enumerator in a thread
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14561#change-71597

* Author: dazuma (Daniel Azuma)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.5.0p0 (2017-12-25 revision 61468) [x86_64-darwin17]
* Backport: 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
This seg fault happens consistently on OSX (specifically I'm reproing it on a late 2015 Macbook pro running 10.13.3, but it seems to happen on similar machines as well). It happens only on Ruby 2.5.0.

Small repro case:

```ruby
enum = Enumerator.new { |y| y << 1 }
thread = Thread.new { enum.peek }  # enum.next also causes the segfault, but not enum.size
thread.join
GC.start   # <- seg fault here
```

The C-level backtrace identifies this as within the mark phase of GC:

I also ran this against Ruby recompiled with -O0, and got a more detailed backtrace:

```

As far as I can tell, the C instruction triggering the segfault is here in gc.c (around line 4064):

```C
static void
mark_locations_array(rb_objspace_t *objspace, register const VALUE *x, register long n)
{
    VALUE v;
    while (n--) {
        v = *x;            // <----- Seems to be crashing here?
        gc_mark_maybe(objspace, v);
        x++;
    }
}
```

Indicating a bad pointer in the machine stack.

I'm not sufficiently familiar with the VM internals to make much further progress, but I hope the repro case is helpful. It seems to require accessing an `Enumerator` element within a separate thread, and then waiting for the thread to end.
