Got it, stupid bug in an if statement.  It should all be fixed up, but
you need to change "log/mongrel.pid" and "log/mongrel.log" to use
absolute paths.  Previously mongrel would try to fix these up, but now
it doesn't.  Change them to be absolute to prevent future surprises.

I'll post another pre-release update in 5 minutes.
