Install YAML::Syck and try this patch to silent warnings on Win32,
though something might go wrong as commented below.

Haven't you "jifty app"ed in a path with white spaces (or special
characters)? I'm using (rather testing) Jifty on Win32 too but I 
can see the pony without problem.

Using YAML::Syck (with above patch) helps a bit.
And use *nix if you can. Your stress will be lessened more ;)
