To use backgroundrb on Windows you'll need to either run it under cygwin, or
use a version pre 0.2.x. See this post by Ezra for the reasons behind this:
I've been running backgroundrb 0.2.1 under cygwin on a windows box for the
last couple of weeks and it's been working fine so far. I'm using it
outside of the rails context so I can't comment on that one.
