I'm puzzled by this one -- for whatever reason, syck isn't getting loaded.  I've not had this problem on HP-UX myself, and yaml.rb has a require 'yaml/syck' at the top, so I don't know why you're not getting an error from rather than getting this far.

If you try:

 ruby -r 'yaml/syck' -e 'p YAML::Syck::Resolver'

..what happens?

Also, this is 1.8.4, right?
