/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rexml/formatters/pretty.rb:129:in `wrap': stack level too deep (SystemStackError)
I’ve had this issue for a while but just started looking for a solution. There’s a number of REXML workarounds in ‘/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rcov/report.rb’ of debian rcov package version 0.8.1.2-2 for Ruby 1.8.6. Since we’re using ubuntu ruby package 22.214.171.124-1ubuntu0.1 now, these workarounds aren’t used. The cheap workaround is to edit this file directly and edit line 15 to change 1.8.6 to 1.8.7.
if RUBY_VERSION == "1.8.7" && defined? REXML::Formatters::Transitive
