Config.gem causes stack level too deep?

I’m trying to figure out why config.gem seems to cause problems.

I have installed two gems ‘will_paginate’ and ‘searchlogic’ that need to
be declared in the environment.rb file in order to be useful. I
installed ‘will_paginate’ first.
After putting the config.gem ‘will_paginate’ command in my
environment.rb, i rebooted mongrel only to get:

I removed the config line and it went away. Of course, this wasn’t good
enough since I wanted the will_paginate functionality. Finally i
discovered if I replaced the config.gem command with a require
‘will_paginate’ line at the end of the file I could avoid the error spam
and still get my functionality.

Here is the text of my environment.rb file without comments:

############
require File.join(File.dirname(FILE), ‘boot’)

Rails::Initializer.run do |config|

config.action_controller.session = {
:session_key => ‘_history_session’,
:secret =>
‘13093336cef6ac2aeeca0681504f5b7d24d398d333fd5c1563772a7cc9b648ba9222109406d91c49e5cfeb03266feab44634326c5a4d8fcb7658360f7b4b0f80’
}

config.gem ‘searchlogic’
config.gem ‘will_paginate’

end
