what is kENSURE and kEND in error message?

K is for keyword; the keyword ensure. It seems like you have a
ensure..end block without the appropriate "begin".

ah, it actually happened with the <%= # some code %>

I think the problem is that seen with most languages, when you have a syntax error the message may appear to have little to do with the actual error as the parser has gone off down the wrong track but does not realise this until it is too late. Admittedly ruby does seem particularly poor at generating useful messages.
