Is the Darwin Ports (macports) maintainer for Ruby on this list?

The problem that James originally reported only seems
to exist in the Darwin Ports version of 1.8.5:

$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [powerpc-darwin8.7.0]

I just built from the current 1.8.5 branch and the problem doesn't
exist:

$ ./ruby -v
ruby 1.8.5 (2007-01-27 patchlevel 17) [powerpc-darwin8.8.0]

$ ./ruby -e 'Thread.new{} and p $stdin.eof?'   # pause until ctrl-D  
entered
true
