Which version of ruby are you using? Is it >= ?

ruby1.8 ( unstable; urgency=low

   [ Lucas Nussbaum ]
   * Update debian/patches/100312_timeout-fix.dpatch after discussion with
     Petr Salinger. Treat FreeBSD the same as Linux. Closes: #580464
ruby1.8 ( unstable; urgency=low

   * Add 100312_timeout-fix.dpatch: Backport upstream change to fix
     problem with threads and timeouts. Closes: #539987

(That bug was triggered by puppet)
