Does anyone know what the rather mysterious error "continuation  
called across trap" means?  It's triggered when I use SyncEnumerator  
in a multithreaded script.  I don't believe I'm doing anything  
obviously wrong with threads, but this error disappears if I don't  
use threads.  Furthermore, the error seems to occur when I use irb  
but not ruby (?? I need to verify this).  I'm suspecting there might  
be a bug in irb.  Code to reproduce the problem is below.  Note,  
also, that the problem disappears if you remove the use of  
@values.find--that is, if you call SyncEnumerator.each directly in  
the lambda.

require 'thread'
require 'generator'

class Region

   def initialize
     @values = []
     @work_queue = Queue.new
     @thread = Thread.new do
       loop do
	@work_queue.deq.call
       end
     end
   end

   def add(value)
     @work_queue << lambda do
       @values << value
     end
   end

   def find(template)
     @work_queue << lambda do
       @values.find do |value|
	SyncEnumerator.new(template, value).each do |lhs, rhs|
	  puts "checking: #{lhs.inspect} === #{rhs.inspect}"
	end
       end
     end
   end

end

Thread.abort_on_exception = true

reg = Region.new
reg.add [1,1]
reg.add [1,2]
reg.add [1,3]

reg.find [1,2]

#sleep 10  # uncommenting this somehow prevents the error
