Bug Description

I ran "gem install rails --include-dependencies",
when it reached the "Installing RDoc documentation for builder-3.0.0..." stage
the hard drive was working constantly, and it kept working the entire night, until I killed it,
it hanged my whole system, so it took me about 5 minutes until I could actually kill the process,

the same thing happened on my laptop, at the same exact point (Installing RDoc documentation for builder-3.0.0) with the same exact process.

See the attachment for the entire RoR installating log.

Basically, this is what I did:
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libopenssl-ruby libfcgi-dev ruby irb rubygems ruby1.8-dev sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev libmysql-ruby libmysqlclient-dev
$ sudo gem install rubygems-update
$ sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies
