Steps to Reproduce:
Steps used by CodeGear QA:

switch to ruby perspective.

file | new | ruby project

file | new | empty ruby script

window|preferences|ruby|editor|syntax coloring

note that DLTK does not offer specific coloring for regexps.
give a distinctive color to strings that is not used by any other token type

copy and paste the following line into the ruby file:

cw = @CurrentFont[ 'cw' ][ c ] * ( @FontSizePt / 1000 )  

//exp & act:  color highlighting is as expected,  

description mentions 2 slashes,  only one found in example.

Modified line to read:

cw = @CurrentFont[ 'cw' ][ c ] * ( @FontSizePt /1000/ )  

now the regexp /1000/ is colored as a string.  

when second / is removed,  first slash to end of line is colored as a string.
closing and reopening file, closing and reopening IDE does not change this.
Workarounds
add a comment with a second "/" sign at the end of the line

cw = @CurrentFont[ 'cw' ][ c ] * ( @FontSizePt / 1000 )   # /

But this can't be a solution becaus it affects the readability of the code!
