I am running the following version:
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-mswin32]

I pulled it some time ago from ruby-lang.org.  I've actually been using ruby on that box for several months now and was able to install the original gem when I installed ruby after picking up the FXRuby book.  Other gems have updated correctly on that system, even when I encountered this error.

However, that particular box is running Windows XP Pro x64 Edition.

-Thank you-
