No surprise here either

ruby 1.9.0 (2007-12-25 revision 14709) [i486-linux]
-e:1: warning: (...) interpreted as grouped expression
["!", "\"", "#", "$", "%", "&", "'", "(", ")", "*", "+", ",", "-",
".", "/", "0", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9"]

but my 1.9 version is quite old as you can see, I doubt however that
this has changed.
