Seen this error while using jekyll serve --trace with latest Jekyll gem, where I had no issue with Jekyll gem 1.5.1.
It could be somehow related to some static files in my repository or some configurations I need to update, as can be built successfully on my machine.

  • Windows 7, Ruby 2.0.0p451, Jekyll gem 2.0.2
  • Linux Mint 16, Ruby 2.1.1p76, Jekyll gem 2.0.2

Stacktrace (static_file.rb#L21):
