Build environment (RVM):

% rvm current

Installed via:

% brew install --with-ruby

Linked environment:

% otool -L weechat/plugins/ruby.so
/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/libruby.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.8.0, current version 1.8.7)
/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 169.3.0)


When trying to load a current ruby gem (e.g. json), weechat dumps core with the following error:

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.
Reason: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at address: 0x0000000000000018 0x00000001013956b5 in st_insert ()
