Crash in ruby 1.9.3 and rails 4.0 because of => invalid multibyte char (US-ASCII)
in file => /lib/authlogic/regex.rb:15: invalid multibyte char (US-ASCII) (SyntaxError)
string causing problem => онлайн

Thanks for adding a "#encoding: UTF-8" at the beginning of the file ...
... yes in ruby 2.0 not needed, but 1.9.3 needs ;)



Also crashing for Rails 3.2.1 (Rails 1.9.3)

domain_tld_regex = '(?:[A-Z]{2,4}|museum|travel|онлайн)'

previous working version
domain_tld_regex = '(?:[A-Z]{2,4}|museum|travel)'

Please remove the: онлайн domain -- it is causing the invalid multibyte character error


I think this can be closed, should have been fixed by 03886b4 (and also e5daee6 which removes the offending characters entirely).
