[Backgroundrb-devel] crashes on ask_status ?

IT all seems fine till I ask it to query the worker for anything
directly. Is packet broken? should we be using a specific version with
backgroundrb?

Console:

>> MiddleMan.query_all_workers
{:type=>:all_worker_status}
=> {:street_worker=>"foo", :log_worker=>nil}

that seems fine, then:

>> MiddleMan.ask_status(:worker_name => :street_worker)
{:type=>:get_status, :worker_name=>:street_worker}
=> nil

and the server barfs. The project is brand new and has nothing other
than this worker in it. The worker itself _only_ registers a status -
nothing else, no methods.

Here's the log:
