Weird,

I did the same (with yesterdays cvs mswin32 build) and got
the error. IMO it is erroneous Ruby code anyway - maybe the
following snippet is somewhat illuminating.

----
def sum
  result = 0
  self.each { |*elt| p elt; result += yield(*elt) }
  result
end

public :sum

un_mod =  [[1,2],[3,4]]
mod = un_mod.clone

def mod.each
  super {|e| yield *e }
end  

mod.sum { |a,b| b }  # runs fine
p "###"
un_mod.sum { |a,b| b } # gives an error.
---
this results in
---
[1, 2]
[3, 4]
"###"
[[1, 2]]
D:/rb75.tmp:3:in `+': nil can't be coerced into Fixnum (TypeError)
	from D:/rb75.tmp:3:in `sum'
