The rcov that ate Durham

We depend pretty heavily on rcov for keeping us sane in our Ruby projects. To our mild surprise and massive consternation, rcov started failing on us yesterday. Somehow or another, we're getting a Bus error thrown out of the c code. It seems to have something to do with multiple aliases of the initialize method in an AR model. It happens across platforms, and it seems that the only other people to experience it are the rspec folks, and the only solution they've found is to turn off the c-level bindings. Which is PAIIINNNFFFULLLLL.

If anybody has any solutions, please let us know, because right now, we're bummed.
