I did a test on patchelevel 230 and found a series of errors that
wasn't present before.

I sent a mail to ruby-core ([ruby-core:17364]):


Basically Drb test or Drb itself is broken in 230, so I wouldn't
recommend we move forward to that version until heard back from

Regarding the other stuff I'm about to run RubySpecs for Iconv,
Readline and that and see how "compatible" we are right now.

Good weekend everybody!
