very strange....
I'm on Vista and updated to Rails 2.2.2 and rubygems 1.3.1 with the
usual problem there.
...but that's well documented...

everything was fine....but then I tried the irb console.
in every shell I have (netbeans, git bash, windows shell)
I got this result:

Now with Netbeans (6.5), you can run a Rails Console or a ruby IRB off
the context menu of a project.
While the Rails Console gave output like above,
The Ruby IRB "worked",  ...see below....
when I loaded the rails environment manually.???????

=======================================================================
.irbrc successfully loaded
>> load 'config/environment.rb'
load 'config/environment.rb'

=> true
>> u = User.new
u = User.new

=> #<User id: nil, login: nil, crypted_password: nil, password_salt:
nil, persistence_token: nil, login_count: nil, last_request_at: nil,
last_login_at: nil, current_login_at: nil, last_login_ip: nil,
current_login_ip: nil, created_at: nil, updated_at: nil>
>> f = FlashCardGame.new
f = FlashCardGame.new

=> #<FlashCardGame:0x5c86d4c @y=98, @x=75, @answer=173>
>>
