Options Dump When Using vim-ruby On Ruby

I'm receiving a lot of strange errors when I try to use vim-ruby on 
Windows.  Any help that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Every time I start up vim or gvim, I get the following error:

Error detected while processing E:\apps\vim\_vimrc:
line 243:
E492: Not an editor command: omnifunc=rubycomplete#Complete
E486: Pattern not found: rubycomplete_buffer_loading = 1
E486: Pattern not found: rubycomplete_classes_in_global = 1
When I actually try to open a Ruby file, I get a dump of all of my 
configuration options.  This dump is 20 pages long.
Here's how I installed vim-ruby:

E:\apps\ruby\bin>ruby -S gem install vim-ruby
Successfully installed vim-ruby-2007.05.07
1 gem installed

E:\apps\ruby\bin>ruby -S vim-ruby-install.rb

Possible Vim installation directories:
        1) F:/vimfiles
        2) E:/apps/vim/vimfiles

Please select one (or anything else to specify another directory): 2
autoload/rubycomplete.vim -> 
compiler/eruby.vim        -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/compiler/eruby.vim
compiler/ruby.vim         -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/compiler/ruby.vim

ftdetect/ruby.vim         -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/ftdetect/ruby.vim
ftplugin/eruby.vim        -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/ftplugin/eruby.vim
ftplugin/ruby.vim         -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/ftplugin/ruby.vim
indent/eruby.vim          -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/indent/eruby.vim
indent/ruby.vim           -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/indent/ruby.vim
syntax/eruby.vim          -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/syntax/eruby.vim
syntax/ruby.vim           -> E:/apps/vim/vimfiles/syntax/ruby.vim

Here's the pertinent lines in my _vimrc file:

" Ruby goodies
autocmd FileType ruby,eruby set

autocmd FileType ruby,eruby let
g:rubycomplete_buffer_loading = 1

autocmd FileType ruby,eruby let
g:rubycomplete_classes_in_global = 1

map <leader>mr <ESC>:rubyf %<CR>

...and here's my Vim version and compile flags:

Here's also a couple of other things to consider:

* Ruby is installed on a thumb drive,and its path is E:\apps\ruby
* I also have Jruby installed on this machine, and Jruby appears in my 
$PATH before ruby.  I tried putting ruby before jruby in my path, but that 
didn't make a difference.

The good news is that the big feature that I can use omnifunc with Ruby. 
The bad news is that I have to page through 20 pages of configuration 
information every time I open a ruby file.

Has anyone ever seen an error like this before?

Thanks in advance!
