Looks good, thanks, but after

$ sudo gem install fastri
$ # (yields a lecture about installing from the tarball instead, but  
says it did it)
$ fastri-server -b

… what do I do? I don't get a fastri command on my path, and using ri  
on the command line still displays the double-listing bug.

TM QUESTION: TextMate displays the new behavior immediately, but it no  
longer includes Rails documentation. How do I get that back?

fastri-server --help doesn't guide me. There's no man page.
