Yeah, Mongrel made a modification to its interface. :/

Two options:

Beta gems which fix this and other bugs. See here:

Or modify the file
as follows:

   def handle(req, res)
     unless handle_file(req, res)
       path = req.path_info

         context = Context.new(@server)

-        context.in = StringIO.new(req.body || "")
+       context.in = StringIO.new(req.body.to_s)

The paths are from memory, so hopefully they're correct.

Good luck,
