console ThreadError ("thread ... tried to join itself")

I'm just getting started with Rails 2 and I've immediately hit a
problem in the console. This must be well known so perhaps someone
could just tell me the solution.

mattleopard$ script/console
Loading development environment (Rails 2.3.5)

app.get "photos"

=> 200

app.get "photos"

ThreadError: thread 0x1003c7368 tried to join itself

As you can see, the *second* app.get command in the console always
throws this error. This is on Snow Leopard. My gems are all up to
date, but perhaps there's some gem that I need to reinstall
completely? Thx - m.

m. this is not a snow leopard issue, try running "script/console
production" and it will work. Because you need to have
config.cache_classes set to true in the environment, and development
you probably want to that turned off.

Take a look at this. Seems like it is fixed in latest release:
