def token_generator
    random = Random.new
    alpha = Array.new
    ('a' .. 'z').each do | c |
      alpha << c
    end
    ('A' .. 'Z').each do | c |
      alpha << c
    end
    numbers = %w{ 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 }
    loop begin
      unique_string = ''
      0.upto( 19 ) do | n |
        if n.even? then
          unique_string << alpha[ random.rand( 52 ) ]
        else
          unique_string << numbers[ random.rand( 10 ) ]
        end
      end
      break unless @sessions.include?( unique_string.to_sym )
    end
    unique_string
  end

causes:

/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:55:in `require': /home/devel/ISF_Server/Actors/DataProvider.rb:49: syntax error, unexpected keyword_do_block, expecting keyword_end (SyntaxError)
      0.upto( 19 ) do | n |
                     ^
/home/devel/ISF_Server/Actors/DataProvider.rb:72: syntax error, unexpected keyword_end, expecting $end
	from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:55:in `require'
	from ./server-work.rb:7:in `<main>'

but replacing begin/end with { } works.
