Thanks for the tips Zed, I will uninstall + reinstall all of the
gems. There is also a new version of fastthread, which I just
installed. In the words of the author:
"Well, just when I thought I was done with fastthread, it turns out
that the version of fastthread merged into Ruby 1.8.6’s thread
library had a couple serious bugs. So, here’s a new version of
fastthread which can serve as a hotfix until the next Ruby release."

We made the switch to 1.8.6 for the reputed 10% speed boost. We're
using it on our in-house server that runs our beta app, and we're not
upgrading the customer servers until this is stable.
Thanks for the help,
