Ok my bad, I guess. My PC hadn't been rebooted and that day I'd been
using some gi-nourmous apps like Photoshop and Flash and Zend IDE all
at once. My machine was running low on some sort of resource (why
can't I find a measurement for it). I had a fair amount of RAM and
swap available, but pretty soon, dialogs wouldn't show up that were
supposed to...or they'd be missing widgets. This is XP...we don't have
that goofy 'resources' memory anymore, right?

It bothers me that it segfaulted tho. I hate when ruby segfaults.
I immediately ran my big fxruby app and it came up just fine just to
see if it would work. Hrm.

Anyway, got it working. Nice. :)

See ya,
