[Ironruby-core] r105 broke assembly loading

maybe system.net was a bad example.

I also have a compiled dll that contains my objects.. when I run my  
specs with r104 things work
when I do it with r105 they don't anymore.  They always fail on those  
require lines.

and you're saying that now I don't have to go through a  
assemblies.each{|assembly| require assembly} anymore but can just do
ir -l bin lib/main.rb to get my app going ?


in the past I just had to do require path_to_my_own_assembly
It seems that that has changed now? At this moment it doesn't seem to  
recognize a .dll as an assembly but rather wants to execute is as a  
ruby source file. Where before the LoadModule method would call  
GetFileKind at some point and correctly identify .dll as an assembly.


I did some more investigating and it seems like File.dirname(__FILE__)  
doesn't report the correct directory in the console
+ C:\projects\lumpr\src\Sylvester.DesktopEdition\Sylvester.IronRuby
» ir
IronRuby on .NET 2.0.50727.1434

Note that local variables do not work today in the console.
As a workaround, use globals instead (eg $x = 42 instead of x = 42).

 >>> File.dirname(__FILE__)
=> "C:\projects\lumpr\src\Sylvester.DesktopEdition"

I thought it would to return => "C:\projects\lumpr\src
