[typo] Problems on Windows.

I've downloaded the newest release of Typo onto both my mac and my  
pc. Both have current versions of ruby and rails. The pc has the  
latest version of mysql, I think my mac's version is a release behind.

On both platforms, rake's tests works, with a single error:

Loaded suite /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rake-0.7.0/lib/rake/ 
Finished in 5.433574 seconds.

   1) Error:
Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - /Users/riki/Downloads/ 

(I'm not too worried about this, I just include this in the interest  
of completeness).

Anyway, launching Typo in webbrick, it works fine on the mac.  
However, when I try to launch it in webbrick on the PC, I get syntax  
errors. Even more oddly, the errors are not consistent. Remotely  
viewing the pages from my mac (where I can cut and paste to my mail)  
I get this:

SyntaxError in Accounts#signup

Showing app/views/layouts/accounts.rhtml where line #4 raised:

compile error
./script/../config/..//app/views//./layouts/accounts.rhtml:4: Invalid  
char `\003' in expression
./script/../config/..//app/views//./layouts/accounts.rhtml:6: syntax  
_erbout.concat "		<title>Typo Administration:  "
./script/../config/..//app/views//./layouts/accounts.rhtml:7: syntax  


Extracted source (around line #4):

1: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

charset=utf-8" />		
6: 		<title>Typo Administration:  <%= controller.controller_name %></ 
7: 		<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no" />

Trace of template inclusion: /app/views/layouts/accounts.rhtml

RAILS_ROOT: ./script/../config/../

On the PC it will give different lines (sometimes #4, sometimes #5),  
and slightly different error messages.

Any idea what's going wrong? Or more importantly, how to fix it?
