On the master-1.9 branch, $? doesn't report the correct exit status (at least in rakelib/contrib/ottobehrens/topaz.rb:51). That's the reason why generating Smalltalk FFI wrappers currently breaks there.

I think this is related to a new rubyspec failure, testing that IO.popen waits for the child to exit after it is finished running the block.
