No, it’s a bug, either in one of the included packages (socket, monitor,

digest/md5 or openssl) or a bug in Ruby itself. If I were a betting
man, I’d
bet on monitor (synchronize), but that’s a guess.

Which version of Ruby, btw? The Changelog indicates that there were a
few
touchups since 1.8.2.

Its 1.8.4.
