You may need to restart your Rails application so that your changes may
be picked up.

Without wanting to sound really dumb, how do I restart a Rails app.  As
far as I can see, the only thing that is actually running is the server
(WEBrick), which I had already tried restarting, without success... :-/

You will probably get better results from the Rails-specific list or
forum.

http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails

Please note that if you're using Ruby-Forum to access information on
Ruby and Rails, you are posting to a mailing list through a forum

Maybe, but as I said, I'm a newbie when it comes to ruby, and really,
from where I stand, this looks to be a ruby thing, not a Rails thing.
Does the Ruby VM remember the types of variables even across sessions?
How do I start a VM session anyway?  How can I reset the VM?

There is no Ruby VM as you'd understand it. If you have something
remembering the type of an object -- not a variable; variables are
typeless here -- then it is probably a Rails problem.

This is only something that could possibly affect long-running
processes.
