I don't have a solution for you but I would suggest to not do this
(run mod_ruby on Windows, that is).

Apache on Windows serves all requests from a single process. The Ruby
interpreter is not thread-safe so mod_ruby creates a Big Mutex
whenever it needs to run. Thus on Windows, with its single-process
model, mod_ruby can only serve one request at a time.
