ActionView::TemplateError crashes Ruby 1.9.1 on Windows

Reported by kdgundermann | February 22nd, 2010 @ 05:57 PM

I have just installed ruby 1.9.1p378 (2010-01-10 revision 26273) [i386-mingw32]
on Windows XP SP3

created a new rails application:

rails niltest cd niltest ruby script\generate controller niltest edit app\controllers\niltest_controller.rb class NiltestController < ApplicationController

def index

@bla = ""



edit app\views\niltest\index.html.erb

BlaBla test

<%= @blabla.test %>

edit config\environment.rb # remove Active Record and Action Mailer Framework config.frameworks -= [ :active_record, :action_mailer ]

ruby -d script\server .. .. [2010-02-22 18:39:39] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1 [2010-02-22 18:39:39] INFO ruby 1.9.1 (2010-01-10) [i386-mingw32] [2010-02-22 18:39:39] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=1872 port=3000 C:/Rails/niltest/app/views/niltest/index.html.erb:2: warning: instance variable

And ruby crashes with :

AppName: ruby.exe AppVer: ModName: msvcrt-ruby191.dll
ModVer: Offset: 000e9b36

When using Ruby without the debug flag everything works fine:

ruby script\server
