Well, actually linoj ran into one regarding gems installed on the
production box. For some reason ruby2ruby was being required, which
redefines method_missing on nil to return nil - meaning that if a
method on nil got called, he wouldn't see it - more then likely, a
template would just display "nil" instead of raising an error.
