      Description

      Trying to install certain gems (e.g. rails) with JRuby 1.6.6 on Windows Server 2008 x64 fails:

      jruby -S gem install rails
      ERROR: While executing gem ... <ArgumentError>
      marshal data too short

      Trying to install the gem with Bundler throws the same error, but with a stack trace:

      jruby -S bundle install
      ArgumentError: marshal data too short
      load at org/jruby/RubyMarshal.java:150

      At the moment I can only reproduce this on a Windows 2008 R2 x64 machine. On a similar 32-bit installation it works flawlessly. Don't know if that could be a reason.
