Here is a simple reproducer.
MRI seems to modify the Array literal permanently:

```ruby
3.times do
  a = [1, 2, 3, 4]
  puts "initial: #{a}"
  begin
    a.reject! do |x|
      case x
      when 2 then true
      when 3 then raise StandardError, 'Oops'
      else false
      end
    end
  rescue StandardError
  end

  puts "after:   #{a}"
end
```

prints

```
initial: [1, 2, 3, 4]
after:   [1, 3, 4]
initial: [1, 3, 4, 4]
after:   [1, 3, 4, 4]
initial: [1, 3, 4, 4]
after:   [1, 3, 4, 4]
```

2.5.3 behaves fine, but trunk is also affected.
