Hello,

The following snippet:

#!/usr/bin/ruby -w
require 'date'
class MyDate < Date
  def self.today
    super
  end
end
puts MyDate.today.class
## end

prints out 'MyDate' with ruby 1.8.4 and 1.8.5, but 'Date' with 1.8.6

Is this a bug in 1.8.6, or the correction of a long lived bug in
versions before ?

Cheers,

Han Holl
