Hello Daniel,

Thank you for your patches!

I'll have to invest on mongrel_service the upcoming week to fix this
issue and integrate other pull request at GitHub repository.

While I can do manually, would you mind review your patches against
mongrel_service repository at GitHub?

http://github.com/fauna/mongrel_service

Either way, I'm going to take care of this.

Thank you once again for your contributions.
