The exact exception is:

"An unhandled exception of type 'System.StackOverflowException'
occurred in mscorlib.dll"

The debugger points to line line 53 in matchmaker.cs:

                if (method != null) {
-this line-->    method = method.MakeGenericMethod(args);
                    return (T)(object)Delegate.CreateDelegate(target,
this, method);

The specific message is:

"Cannot evaluate expression because the current thread is in a stack
overflow state."

I thought it may have been a permissions issue, because the only way I
could get IronRuby to compile was by running as Administrator, but
this did not fix the problem either.
