Issue #17141 has been updated by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans).

Backport changed from 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN, 2.7: UNKNOWN to 2.5: DONTNEED, 2.6: DONTNEED, 2.7: REQUIRED
Status changed from Open to Closed

I can confirm this crash in Ruby 2.7.1, 2.7.0, and the ruby_2_7 branch.  It is not present in master.

Here's the backtrace on ruby_2_7 branch:

Here's a possible fix:

```

Closing and marking for backport.
