Bug #7779: embedded rubygems 2.0.0.rc.2 mangles --user-install
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7779#change-36564

Author: jonforums (Jon Forums)
Status: Assigned
Priority: Normal
Assignee: drbrain (Eric Hodel)
Category: core
Target version: 2.0.0
ruby -v: ruby 2.0.0dev (2013-02-04 trunk 39035) [i686-linux]


This is low priority for my usage, and while I'm not investigating the issue anytime soon, I'm surfacing it here in case it's not my system issue and it affects 2.0.0 readiness. I didn't see anything similar on RG's GH issue tracker.

system: ubuntu server 12.10 32bit running in virtualbox vm
