Yes, the template code inside rails causes rdoc to run in an infinite
loop. But i think in this case first of all rdoc must be fixed and
also the gem writter must use a ".document" file to avoid this.

But i now thing that disabling the --rdoc option is no good idea as i
want to force the generation and from the logic of rdoc there
shouldn't be a problem with it.
