Ruby 2.7 changed the behavior so that `a` and `c` are treated identically, but that `c` is like `a`:

```
a # #<Module:0x00000b0bda620368>
b # #<Class:0x00000b0bda6203b8>::B
c # #<Module:0x00000b0bdcdd3c20>
```

I think that is sufficient for this bug to be considered closed.  However, if you would like the singleton classes named, here is a patch for that:

```diff
diff --git a/object.c b/object.c
index 08fec850d3..1181b45b3c 100644
--- a/object.c
+++ b/object.c
@@ -2536,6 +2536,11 @@ rb_mod_const_set(VALUE mod, VALUE name, VALUE value)

     ID id = id_for_var(mod, name, const);
     if (!id) id = rb_intern_str(name);
+    if (rb_attr_get(mod, rb_intern("__tmp_classpath__")) == Qnil &&
+           rb_attr_get(mod, rb_intern("__classpath__")) == Qnil) {

+            rb_funcall(mod, rb_intern("to_s"), 0));
+    }
     rb_const_set(mod, id, value);

     return value;
```

Output:

```
a # #<Class:#<Object:0x0000003003436178>>::A
b # #<Class:#<Object:0x0000003003436178>>::B
c # #<Class:#<Object:0x0000003003436178>>::C
```

I kind of prefer this as it shows the module is defined under a singleton class.  If you like that idea, please submit a feature request for it (or switch this to a feature request and reopen).

Bug #14895: Inconsistent constant names when using const_set on a singleton class

```
irb(main):001:0> class X; end
=> nil
irb(main):002:0> X.const_set(:Y, Module.new)
=> X::Y
irb(main):003:0> module M; end
=> nil
irb(main):004:0> M.const_set(:N, Module.new)
=> M::N
irb(main):005:0> x = Object.new
=> #<Object:0x000055886ee2b110>
irb(main):006:0> x.singleton_class.const_set(:Z, Module.new)
=> #<Module:0x000055886ec59a80>
irb(main):007:0> x.singleton_class.class_eval "module A; self end"
=> #<Class:0x000055886ec59d00>::A
irb(main):008:0> x.singleton_class.const_set(:B, Module.new)
=> #<Class:0x000055886ec59d00>::B
```

I would expect module `Z` to be named, but the modules only start being named after creating module `A` through the `module` builtin.

For consistency, if module `B` is named, shouldn't module `Z` be named as well?

Also happens in these ruby versions:
`ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [x86_64-linux]`
`ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [i386-mingw32]`
