Thanks to Assaph Mehr and James Britt for the heads up on the safe_ln 
issue.  I decided to just catch StandardError in safe_ln, on the theory 
that if ln fails for any reason it is probably ok to try the copy.

I have released a beta version of rake with the patched safe_ln.  If 
someone who has problems with the earlier version (i.e. James or Assaph) 
could try the beta to verify the fix, I will then release it as an update.

To get the beta:

   gem install rake --source http://onestepback.org/betagems

not tried it." -- Donald Knuth (in a memo to Peter van Emde Boas)
