Tonight, RubyGems 1.6 was released. It no longer requires 'thread' from the stdlib, but rails 2.x app depend on that behaviour. Therefor we need to add

require 'thread'

somewhere in our sources. This is also mentioned in the Release Blog Post

Before merging I would ask you to confirm, that it is broken and that this fixes it the error. Though I have tested it, it is just a 'my machine' issue for the moment.

It is broken with ruby 1.8.7-p334 and rubgems 1.8.6 on my mac. Your patch fixes it (i.e Mongrel starts again and tests run smooth.)

I just pulled your patch in. Thanks Gregor!

For documentation purposes - this seems to be part of newer versions of Rails already. - this commit is part of Rails 2.3.9.

The patch may therefore be removed after the switch to 2.3-latest
