I'm seeing various failures during gem installation related to RI. They look like the following errors:

./bin/rbx -S gem install rdoc
Successfully installed rdoc-2.4.3
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for rdoc-2.4.3...
ERROR: While executing gem ... (NoMethodError)
No method 'keys' on an instance of RDoc::RI::MethodDescription.

Installing Rails also shows a similar error:

./bin/rbx -S gem install rails
Successfully installed rake-0.8.7
Successfully installed activesupport-2.3.2
Successfully installed activerecord-2.3.2
Successfully installed actionpack-2.3.2
Successfully installed actionmailer-2.3.2
Successfully installed activeresource-2.3.2
Successfully installed rails-2.3.2

It appears to me to possibly be a GC issue related to Syck.

This is the debug log I'm getting for installing the rdoc gem:
