That thread is about 2.0.2. Does 2.1 have this same problem?

No, it doesn't. I've installed 2.1 by gem and the problem doesn't occur.
But I have other problems caused by Rails' incompatibility.

Now I'm already upgrade 1.8.7 ,how to downgrade to 1.8.6 under debian?

There are the same issue with Ruby 1.8.7-p17? I know that it's in
debian sid now. But I don't test.

What package version are you referring to? I run Debian testing which
just migrated ruby-1.8 package to version 1.8.7-2. I use this platform
for development with Rails 2.0.2 and have not noticed any problems.
