Hello,

First of all, I want to apologize because this bug report will not be realized at all in good shape. I encounter this problem on a rails application currently in production, but I am unable to reproduce it. I failed to provide you a script to reproduce. I'm very sorry. But.. maybe it will ring a bell to someone.

--- 

So, I have a hash, built this way:

```ruby
messages
  .each_with_object(Hash.new { [] }) { ... }
  .transform_values { ... }

{
  [:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111114^ORBIS"}]=>#<ExternalSyncMessage id: 82, ... >,
  [:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111115^ORBIS"}]=>#<ExternalSyncMessage id: 84, ... >,
  [:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111116^ORBIS"}]=>#<ExternalSyncMessage id: 85, ... >, 
  [:appointment, {:id=>"30"}]=>#<ExternalSyncMessage id: 86, ... >,
  [:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111111^ORBIS"}]=>#<ExternalSyncMessage id: 79, ... >,
  [:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111112^ORBIS"}]=>#<ExternalSyncMessage id: 80, ... >,
}
```

Here is the result in `ruby 2.6.6p146 (2020-03-31 revision 67876) [x86_64-darwin19]` when I try to access it:

```ruby
hash[[:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111114^ORBIS"}]]
=> #<ExternalSyncMessage id: 82, ... >

hash[[:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111117^ORBIS"}]]
=> nil
```

Here is the result in `ruby 2.7.1p83 (2020-03-31 revision a0c7c23c9c) [x86_64-darwin19]` when I try to access it:

```ruby
hash[[:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111114^ORBIS"}]]
=> #<ExternalSyncMessage id: 82, ... >

hash[[:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111117^ORBIS"}]]
=> #<Proc:0x00007fdc59a6e310 /Users/beauraf/Code/doctolib/doctolib/app/services/sync/farming_support/retry_inbound_messages.rb:75>

hash[[:appointment, {:import_identifier=>"TVER111111117^ORBIS"}]].call
=> []
```

note: `retry_inbound_messages.rb:75` => `.each_with_object(Hash.new { [] }) { ... }`

--- 

So, if I'm right, the result on ruby 2.6, was not the good one but acceptable one on my side. On ruby 2.7, we're close to the good result, but we have to call the proc manually, which causes a lot of worries on my side.


At your entire disposal, if I can help in any way.
