Likely bug in Mechanize 0.7.6

I was trying to use Mechanize when it kept throwing an exception at me.
After trying to debug it, I found this code snippet starting at line 441
of
mechanize.rb:

url = ((base && base.uri && base.uri.absolute?) ?
base.uri :
cur_page.uri) + url
url = cur_page.uri + url

Now, without knowing anything about what this method does or how

mechanize even works, I’m pretty sure that this is a bug. The method
literally crashes when trying to call method “uri” of the variable
“base.”
Commenting out the first assignment seems to allow the code to work
(although I don’t understand how). Hopefully, mechanize doesn’t depend
on
any side effects of the various methods called in the first assignment.
Does anyone know of a proper fix to this bug?
Thank you…

Considering how I have no idea what I'm doing... no, I haven't.  Do 

I do
this at RubyForge? …under “Submit New?”
