Bug #2570: ruby never stops executing when installing fxruby-1.6.20-x86-mingw32.gem

ruby -v: 1.9.1 (2009-12-07 patchlevel 376) [1386-mingw32]

I compile ruby 1.9.1-p376 with MinGW 4.4.0 using the following configuration:
CFLAGS='-s -O4'
LDFLAGS='-s -O4 -static-libgcc'
--optflags='-s -O4'
--debugflags=''

make test succeeded, and make install runs fine.

Upon installing above gem, or more precisely when installing ri documentation, the execution never stops. Both packaged gem (1.3.1) and latest rubygems (1.3.5) are tested. Since it doesn't happen with 1.8.6-p383 or 1.8.7-p248, I suspect this as 1.9.1-p376 bug.
