[Backgroundrb-devel] Packet error on startup suddenly.

Hello, I've been using backgroundrb successfully for months now, but
suddenly I'm getting the error below when trying to start it up. I did
some searching and I see that someone posted about it last month:

http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/backgroundrb-devel/2008-April/001685.html

Anyone have any idea what could have happened? I made no changes to
the code or configs, but I did recently update the packages on the
Debian server that it's running on. Could some package be affecting
packet 0.1.5?

Here's the error, and thanks for any help you can give me!
