[Backgroundrb-devel] backgroundrb won't start after upgrade

I just upgraded BackgroundRb on a working Rails app by checking out
the newest code from the git repository, deleting anything in the
scripts directory left by the old version and running rake:backgroundb
setup. It now appears to be horribly broken and the server won't
start. For example:

bonnacon% script/backgroundrb start
`parse_cmd_options': uninitialized constant
BackgrounDRb::Config::OptionParser (NameError)
        from script/backgroundrb:15

Adding a "require 'optparse'" instruction to the code mentioned above
leads to this error instead:

bonnacon% script/backgroundrb start
`const_missing': uninitialized constant
BackgrounDRb::MasterProxy::BDRB_CONFIG (NameError)
        from /home/milo/Work/Web/cpdnresults/vendor/plugins/backgroundrb/server/lib/master_proxy.rb:7:in
        from script/backgroundrb:42:in `new'
        from script/backgroundrb:42

Is this an error with my Rails setup (2.2.2), or is there something
wrong with BackgroundRb itself?
