@elia @catmando @iliabylich does this javascript representation familiar? see attached image above

It's supposed to be "string" and was obtained with

object.class.to_s.gsub(/:+/, "_").downcase.to_sym

trying to debug opal-console on 0.10.2, thinking something has changed w/symbols or something

I do remember seeing this once, but I cannot remember where or how...

somehow a string is getting converted to that

@fkchang It happens when you create a string with new String(string).
in JS, that is.
If you use the String() function, it handles it as a typical string, but new String() works differently.

@/all false start, that string seems to work, it seems that arity is returning undefined

arity should be -1, but it's undefined, other arity calls seem to work. method is defined w/ a define_method

@/all random observation, the crystal gitter channel is really active, wish the opal related channels could be such. I will note that it seems the bulk of the participation is from the irc side of things (they have an irc to gitter bridge). Perhaps we should have set one up, but I have to say I haven't checked opal irc in ages
