Bug #16257: Gem::Version instances are silently created as singletons
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16257#change-82066

* Author: tonci (Toni Damjani)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.6.5p114 (2019-10-01 revision 67812) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
Instantiating `Gem::Version` objects via `new` actually returns singletons, which is not obvious nor is this documented anywhere:

~~~
irb(main):001:0> v1 = Gem::Version.new("2.2.0")
=> #<Gem::Version "2.2.0">
irb(main):002:0> v1.frozen?
=> false
irb(main):003:0> v2 = Gem::Version.new("2.2.0")
=> #<Gem::Version "2.2.0">
irb(main):004:0> v2.frozen?
=> false
irb(main):005:0> v1.freeze
=> #<Gem::Version "2.2.0">
irb(main):006:0> v1.frozen?
=> true
irb(main):007:0> v2.frozen?
=> true
irb(main):008:0> v1.object_id == v2.object_id
=> true
~~~

Affected Ruby versions:

* `ruby 2.6.5p114 (2019-10-01 revision 67812) [x86_64-linux]`
* `ruby 2.4.4p296 (2018-03-28 revision 63013) [x86_64-darwin17]`


This feature can cause side-effects if the application freezes a `Gem::Version` that matches the version of one of the loaded gems.

```
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  ...
  SOME_VERSION = Gem::Version.new('2.2.0').freeze
end
```

Error raised during `rails console` startup (notice that `js_cookie_rails` is on the same version):

```
Invalid gemspec in [/var/www/application-server/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.4/specifications/js_cookie_rails-2.2.0.gemspec]: can't modify frozen Gem::Version

    from /usr/share/ruby/vendor_ruby/2.4/rubygems.rb:209:in `try_activate'
    ...
```

Unfreezing the `SOME_VERSION` constant fixes the gemspec error.
