[Ironruby-core] defined?(xxx) behaves differently when called from Silverlight

Woops, hit send too soon. I just tested it out on a Mac in FF3 and Safari3, and nothing blew up and the console rendered fine. You're future mail said things work, so I guess I'm just confirming that your prior installation was all-sorts-of-crazy.

Also, Chiron on the Mac wouldn't cause this, as Chiron simply serves a XAP file, and has nothing to do with the actual running of the SL app.

The folder SL is installed into is the version; if you're using SL2 it should be C:\Program Files\Microsoft Silverlight\2.0.40115.0\. SL3 Beta is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Silverlight\3.0.40307.0\.
I'm testing this from my Mac. I'll be searching for the files using find.


Unzip that and double-click on the index.html file. The first line of app.xap is defined?(System::Windows::Forms), and works fine. It also works in the console. Let me know what happens for you.

Clicking on index.html shows a welcome message and the ironruby console, so it doesn't seem to bang.

Editing has some weird behaviour: when I type (, defined? gets erased. Maybe totally unrelated, but this mean I can't test in the console.

I'm a bit puzzled as why it fails. I'll try to find some extra time to investigate - may be related to the fact that I'm using Chiron on Mac ?

No idea what's happening for the moment.

Thanks for the repro, Jimmy.
