I ran strace ruby /usr/bin/rails test_app > strace.txt, and it
generated 54MB of text. It looks like the last 100 lines or so might
be relevant, but I don't know how to decipher them. The "No such file
or directory - /dev/urandom" occurs toward the bottom.
I'd appreciate it if anyone is willing to have a look. I guess my next
step might be to rerun the strace with the puts() statement in there
and see what the difference is.
