I just began starting to use Ruby-- and programming in general-- so
maybe the solution to this problem is very simple.

I get the following bug message both when I attempt to install a gem
(specifically the the gettext gem-- see link below for reference) and
when I attempt to to query the remote gems on Windows XP:

c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/incremental_fetcher.rb:133:
[BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.5 <2006-08-25> [i186-mswin32]

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an
unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more
information.

This bug results when I enter in either of the following prompts in the
command console:

C:\>gem install gettext

or

C:\>gem query --remote

Is there an easy solution to this problem?
