I updated to ruby 1.8.6p111 last night and updated some gems and now 
mongrel doesn't work:

MacOS 10.4.10

$ ruby --version
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i686-darwin8.10.1]

$ gem list rails

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

rails (1.2.5, 1.2.4, 1.2.3, 1.2.2, 1.2.1, 1.2.0, 1.1.6)

Here's a simple test:

$ rails test5
       create  ...

$ cd test5
$ script/server
=> Booting Mongrel (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick)
=> Rails application starting on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
** Starting Mongrel listening at 0.0.0.0:3000
** Starting Rails with development environment...
** Rails loaded.
** Loading any Rails specific GemPlugins
