Description

I found that mixing autoload and require causes deadlock and incomplete definition.

% cat a.rb 
class A
  def a1() end
end
% cat base.rb 
autoload :A, './a'

t1 = Thread.new { p A.instance_methods(false) }
t2 = Thread.new { require './a' }

t1.join
t2.join
% ruby base.rb 
Traceback (most recent call last):

% ruby base.rb
[]

The last run which prints [] means incomplete definition of A which a1 method is not defined.
