Issue #10741 has been updated by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans).

Status changed from Open to Closed

This was fixed between 2.6 and 2.7.0-preview1:

```
$ ruby26 a.rb  
in b
true

$ ruby27 a.rb  
true
```

----------------------------------------
Bug #10741: const_defined? triggers autoload where it did not before
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10741#change-79196

* Author: headius (Charles Nutter)
* Status: Closed
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.0.0
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
This should not cause b.rb to load, but it does in 2.2:

~/projects/jruby $ cat a.rb
module Foo
  autoload :Bar, 'b.rb'
end

p Foo.const_defined?('Bar')

~/projects/jruby $ cat b.rb
puts "in b"
module Foo
  Bar = 1
end

~/projects/jruby $ rvm ruby-2.0 do ruby -I. a.rb
true

~/projects/jruby $ rvm ruby-2.1 do ruby -I. a.rb
in b
true

~/projects/jruby $ rvm ruby-2.2 do ruby -I. a.rb
in b
true

This is likely caused by the :: support in const_get/const_defined not doing autoload-free traversal.
