It did what you told it to :-) If you do the following, you should see why:

  telnet 127.0.0.1 80
  GET /test.rbx HTTP/1.0
  Host: localhost
  <hit Enter again>

If I'm right, the web server has already output a HTTP/1.0 response, so your
script is outputting a second one, which the client sees is not a valid
header, so treats it as the response body.

If you really want your Ruby program to generate the HTTP response, you'll
need to configure your webserver to run it as an nph script. Maybe renaming
it to nph-test.rbx will be sufficient. Otherwise just remove the first print
line from your script.
