If that doesn’t work and you follow the resque configuration guide from http://github.com/defunkt/resque which uses config/initializers/resque.rb make sure you have upgraded all your gems (make sure you update rubygems itself) and if you are running Ubuntu/Debian I suggest you install redis from source and configure monit to start and monitor it.
