[Mongrel] Mongrel Service won't start on windows

64bit Intel 8 CPU server
Windows 2003 Server
Service set to run as LocalSystem, doesn't work as user account either

The error we see is:
"Service failed to start in a timely..."
Which I have seen in the past email trails as working

The app works from mongrel_rails start and from  mongrel_service console -N
servicename -p 3000 -c c:\rails_apps\appname -e production

We upgraded to Mongrel 1.0.1, Mongrel Service 0.3.1

It looks like updates to win32-process and win32-service came with the gem
updates for those. Which versions are good to go with mongrel_service-

This is working on our test and development servers, which are both VMWare

I currently have a pack of mongrels running in command line windows under
our sysadmin's user account- any ideas what to do?
