Until irb's maintainer makes an official fix to the CVS sources, you can 
change line 16 of ruby/lib/irb/init.rb from this:

	def IRB.initialize(ap_path)

to this:

	def IRB.setup(ap_path)

and then change line 54 of ruby/lib/irb.rb from this:

	IRB.initialize(ap_path)

to:

	IRB.setup(ap_path)

Hope this helps,
