"rails server" doesn't start mongrel by default

Reported by Torsten Maul | February 5th, 2010 @ 03:50 PM | in 3.0.2

My environment: Windows XP, Ruby 1.8.7, Rails 3.0.0.beta, Mongrel gem installed

When issueing the command

rails server
in my application path, WEBrick is started, instead of Mongrel. From looking in the documentation, there seems to be no option for setting the server. I tried with
rails server mongrel
, but that doesn't work too.

One workaround I've found, is to call

rackup --server mongrel --port 3000
in your application path.
