Sorry for my delay in responding.  I've had my email shut down most of the 
day.  Sometimes very wierd things start happening when Outlook starts 
receiving during a testing session.

As Ezra has already responded with the broad stroke, I'll just add a little 

Eden Li was actually the first to suggest the solution.  It didn't show up 
here because he hit the 'Reply' button instead of the 'Reply All'. (<rant>I 
really hate how that varies from list to list</rant>).

In my Linux environment, I'm now invoking Backgroundrb using:
$ RAILS_ENV=production script/backgroundrb/start -d

Note that I've used the -d option so I could get the command prompt back to 
start mongrel from the same PuTTY session.  If that's going to cause me a 
problem down the road, someone _please_ let me know.

If anyone can help me understand why the following does not work, I'd be 
very appreciative.
$ RAILS_ENV=production
$ rake backgroundrb:start

On Windows, where I'm doing my development, things are a little trickier. A 
Command Window doesn't give you access to the System's version of the 
Environment Variables.  Any value set in a Command Window is only available 
in that window.  That's been true since at least Win2K, and I'm pretty sure 
it started with NT.  So I set RAILS_ENV in My Computer -> Properties -> 
Advanced -> Environment Variables.

Best regards,
