I think it's a parsing problem, rather than an idiom problem. I think he
read it as if "offhand" were the object of "that is offhand," which
doesn't make much sense.
How about this:
"Offhand, I'm not sure why that is true (still waking up this fine
Monday morning), but I'd recommend throwing this question to the rails
mailing list if nobody responds here."
