Libxml-ruby causes "Bus error" on Mac OS 10.4.10


I tried to validate a XML-file with a XSD-file with libxml-ruby. On my
Mac (Mac OS 10.4.10, Ruby ruby 1.8.6 (2007-03-13 patchlevel 0) [i686- darwin8.10.1]) the folowing error message appears:

$ ruby testxsd.rb
testxsd.rb:37: [BUG] Bus Error
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-03-13) [i686-darwin8.10.1]

Abort trap

After I reinstalled Ruby with MacPorts the error still occurs.
Then I’ve set up a Ubuntu Linux in Parallels, installed the libxml-
ruby library and the script worked/works fine.

But on my Mac, it still crashes.

Has anyone an idea what could have went wrong, what may caused the
error and how I can fix it? Or has anyone got the same error??
