Hi all,

I must have been testing windows-pr with an old version of windows-api, 
because now when I run 'rake test' for windows-pr I get this:

C:\Documents and Settings\djberge\workspace\windows-pr>rake test
C:0:Warning: require_gem is obsolete.  Use gem instead.
(in C:/Documents and Settings/djberge/workspace/windows-pr)
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/windows/api.rb:288: warning: instance 
variable @boolean not initialized
C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/openssl/buffering.rb:98: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i386-mswin32]

Please contact the application's support team for more information.
rake aborted!
Command failed with status (3): [C:/ruby/bin/ruby -w 
-Ilib;lib;lib/windows ...]

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

The warning is bizarre. How can @boolean be uninitialized? The line 
number for the segfault it baffling.

If I revert back to using an older version of windows-api (that uses the 
stdlib Win32API) everything works fine. We seemed to have messed up 
something in win32/api, but I couldn't tell you what.

Help please!!!
