I noticed that you have ruby installed in a folder with spaces.

That often arraise some issues. (couldn't figure out every issue with
spaced names, bear on me).

I will check what could be patched in the current code for next release.

For the time being, try relocating your ruby installation to something
more freindly, like C:\Ruby.

(Like Python or Perl do).

mongrel_rails will work, but mongrel_service wouldn't since spaced
names (non-quoted actualy) are in the way.
