Well, this is no good. I'm seeing the same problem on Mac OS X with  
fox16 built against Ruby 1.8.5 -- so I don't have any reason to  
believe that rebuilding will make the problem go away. And I see that  
you didn't get any responses to your post to ruby-core (did you?)

I guess I need to run this under the debugger and see what's going on  
(i.e. why it's loading the shared object more than once). Surely the  
semantics of require haven't changed?
