I can't seem to run eruby (from the 1.6.2 installer version 3 from
Dave&Andy's site) under win98. all I get is

C:\>eruby --version
ruby: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.6.2 (2000-12-18) [i386-cygwin]
      0 [sig] ERUBY 617491 stackdump: Dumping stack trace to
ERUBY.EXE.stackdump

and the stack trace looks like this (if it means something to anyone):

In a thread from last month, Andy said that this problem shouldn't occur if
Ruby is installed in a path without spaces... Well, I always install it
under C:\ruby, so that shouldn't be the problem ;-)

Any ideas, clues or people with the same problem?
