The backtrace indicates that the exception was thrown from "set" which would imply that the call to text_field succeeded. Could you break up the line "b.text_field(:name, "q").set("pickaxe")" into two statements to see narrow down where the problem might be happening?
Also, could you run with "ir.exe -D", attach with VS, and get the full call stack for all the exceptions thrown by the problematic statement? There might be other exceptions thrown before Watir::Exception::UnknownObjectException, and the those other exceptions might be more useful to track down the problem. One suspect could be that COM Interop is misbehaving somehow.
Also, what was the patch to watir.rb (and what exact version of watir are you using) so we could try to repro the problem?

Ok, so after hacking watir.rb, I managed to get IE to open and navigate
to the URL, but then using the following basic script:
require 'watir' # use watir gem
test_site = 'http://www.google.com' # set a variable
b = Watir::IE.new # open the IE browser
b.goto(test_site) # load url, go to site
b.text_field(:name, "q").set("pickaxe") # load text "pickaxe" into
search field named "q"
b.button(:name, "btnG").click # "btnG" is the name of the
Search button, click it
if b.text.include?("Programming Ruby")
puts "Test Passed. Found the test string: 'Programming Ruby'."
puts "Test Failed! Could not find: 'Programming Ruby'"
I now get the following error:
./watir/element.rb:54:in `assert_exists': Unable to locate element,
using :name, "q" (Watir::Exception::UnknownObjectException)
from ./watir/element.rb:288:in `enabled?'
from ./watir/element.rb:60:in `assert_enabled'
from ./watir/input_elements.rb:328:in `set'
