Description Martin Krauskopf 2007-03-29 15:16:50 UTC
Real-case example (and good for testing a lot of things).

1) Open debug.rb in your Ruby installation (just with File -> Open File...)
   (in my case it resides in /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/debug.rb)
2) Go to Navigator (Ctrl-7)
3) Find first "max_thread" item and click it -> will take you to appropriate
   location where @max_thread is defined.
4) Go to Navigator (Ctrl-7)
5) Find second "max_thread" item. Gives you to usage of @max_thread in the
   anonymous class for DEBUGGER__ which is wrong.

Reassigning this issue to newly created 'ruby' component.
Comment 2 Torbjorn Norbye 2007-08-04 19:59:56 UTC
Confirmed. The difficulty is that Ruby fields aren't declared anywhere - they come into existence whenever they are first assigned. I usually track fields per 
class and only show the first assignment I encounter as the "declaration" in the navigator, but with anonymous innerclasses or even same file subclasses, this 
breaks down.

Will attempt something for 6.0.

Still a problem in 6.7.
