I've started getting the following error on Dreamhost when trying to run
any scripts or dispatch.*

[barry]$ ruby -d script/server
Exception `LoadError' at ./script/../config/boot.rb:6 - no such file to
load -- pathname
./script/../config/boot.rb:6:in `require': no such file to load --
pathname (LoadError)
         from ./script/../config/boot.rb:6
         from script/server:6:in `require'
         from script/server:6

For some reason it can't find 'pathname'

It happens on all versions of my app (I upload new versions to
date-stamped directories to ensure easy rollback if an update screws
something so have an archive of old working versions on the server) so
it wouldn't appear to be a problem with my code, but with the server

Has anyone on Dreamhost had this issue too, or know of any way to debug
further so I can help sort it out quickly?

Thanks in advance.
