Thanks a lot. At least I won't be killing myself trying to figure out 
what I missed. FYI, I tested on version 1.1 and 1.1.3 and they seem to 
have the same issue.
Since we are on the subject, I wonder if you can spare some of your time 
help me understand this:

As far as I understand, the global environment is actually a singleton 
'main' Object. The function defined in the global scope should be 
translated to private method of Object class which is what it shows in 
iirb.bat. Not sure why ir.exe as well as the code in the ScriptEngine 
does not behave that way.

(ir):3:in `hi': undefined method `global_hi' for #<A:0x0000056>
