Don't worry, I know you didn't, but that post will serve as pointer
for future rants ;-)

I've not seen a "huge" difference between these versions (performance speaking).

In any case, it fixed a few issues with mongrel_rails parameters and
some security issues with DirHandler, only if you served directly
Mongrel and not behind apache or nginx.

Forgot to mention: check what are you logging in your log/ files, and
how big the became... Ruby don't play nice with bigger files (neither
most of the dynamic languages I know of)

No problem man, don't take them personally :-)
