Two things:

What version of RubyGems are you using? 0.9.5 shows some problems with
mswin32 platform.

It seems this is the problem, since there is a native build of
fastthread for mswin32 (even that mongrel-mswin32 don't require it).

I suggest you revert to 0.9.4 until this issue get solved. Eric Hodel
is working on it.
