Binary data can be incorrectly converted and raise exceptions. For these cases, catch the exception and just return the original string.

In general. There were two errors in the code. His input was a binary string that the Array regular expression was matching, and that was then evaled with a syntax error. The spec change tests the eval with a syntax error. The other problem was the use of ^ and $ instead of \A and \z for the regular expressions. I can add a different spec for that.
