Issue #15536 has been updated by mame (Yusuke Endoh).


Good catch.  The following code still crashes on trunk.

```
{
  **{
    a0: nil,
    a1: nil,
    a2: nil,
    a3: nil,
    a4: nil,
    a5: nil,
    a6: nil,
    a7: nil,
    a8: nil,
  },
  a0: nil,
  a1: nil,
  a2: nil,
  a3: nil,
  a4: nil,
  a5: nil,
  a6: nil,
  a7: nil,
  a8: nil,
  **{
    c: nil
  },
  b0: nil,
  b1: nil,
  b2: nil,
  b3: nil,
  b4: nil,
  b5: nil,
  b6: nil,
  b7: nil,
  b8: nil,
  b9: nil,
  b10: nil,
  b11: nil,
  b12: nil,
  b13: nil,
  b14: nil,
  b15: nil,
  b16: nil,
  b17: nil,
  b18: nil,
  b19: nil,
  b20: nil,
  b21: nil,
}
```

Here is a patch.  It might have an inefficient case, but I think it is easy to backport.

```
diff --git a/st.c b/st.c
index c6b3644e39..ed235c674e 100644

Bug #15536: Crash on merging specific hashes using keyword splat
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15536#change-76338

* Author: decuplet (Nikita Shilnikov)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.5.3p105 (2018-10-18 revision 65156) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
Here's a snippet that leads to a crash on ruby 2.5.3. I tried to make it as small as possible.
```ruby
1000.times do
  {
    **{
      a1: nil,
      a2: nil,
      a3: nil,
      a4: nil,
      a5: nil,
      a6: nil,
      a7: nil,
      a8: nil,
      a9: nil
    },
    b1: nil,
    b2: nil,
    a4: nil,
    **{ c1: nil, c2: nil },
    a7: nil,
    a8: nil,
    a9: nil,
  }
end
```

Results in `*** Error in irb': malloc(): memory corruption: 0x000055ca6c832bd0 ***` (more detail in the attached file).

We came across this on ruby 2.5.3 and as far as I can tell it's no longer a problem on 2.6 but we yet to upgrade.
