After reviewing the debdiff I saw that ruby1.8 is using a patch system.
Please, when the package has a patchsystem please using it instead of
patching the source directly. More information in [1], and follow the
guidelines in [2]:

Unsubscribing from ubuntu-sponsors for now.

Issue is the same as http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/2708
I'm getting a NoMethodError exception, instead of the Errno::ECONNREFUSED exception I should be getting with the following code : 

  require 'net/http'
  n = Net::HTTP.new('', 1234) # or any other unused port

The linked page includes a patch to fix this issue.
