Hey James-

	When did this start happening? If you roll back one revision from  
trunk does that fix it? I just did a fresh svn co of trunk and was  
able to run the setup and start tasks without any issues. So please  
try again. Aslo can you use the start script directly instead of the  
rake task? Take a look in the rake task you can see what it does, it  
just copies the script dir up into your rails app and makes a config  
file. I don't know how to make rake more verbose in this case. Maybe  
open up the rakefile and add some puts statements and tell me what  
you find out would you?
