Affects Version/s: Release 1.3
Fix Version/s: None
Patch:Code and Test
When a Var has an in-thread binding and I use with-redefs to temporarily alter its root binding, the value restored to the root binding after with-redefs is finished will not be the original root value, but the thread-local one. The problem is using deref instead of something like clojure.lang.Var's .getRawRoot to backup the original root values in with-derefs-fn.
I have never used with-redefs and it is very unlikely that one would use it while the Vars in question are thread-bound. However, when reading the function's definition in Joy of Clojure and later in core.clj, I did not believe this behaviour was intended.
