[p4ruby] How to bump the API version?

I've rebuilt p4ruby using the 2006.1 p4Api, but it still complains that I
need to upgrade to 2004.2 when I try to access tickets. What's up? I noticed
the problem when I was running the script on our build server and it
complained that P4PASSWD was invalid or unset, which it isn't. (All other p4
commands work)


Here's the p4conf.rb output:

C:\Work\ws\p4ruby-main-axl>ruby p4conf.rb --apidir C:\Work\ws\user-axl\p4api

Starting to configure P4/Ruby for building

And here's the p4.rb test output:

        [Warning]: Must upgrade to 2004.2 p4 to access tickets.

And to make sure the right version was loaded:
irb(main):010:0> puts P4.identify
