Are you executing the script from the same directory?  Having "." in RUBY_PATH only means that your "current" directory will be checked, not the one actually hosting the script.

If you are in "/tmp" and you have "/usr/local/lib/ruby:." in RUBY_PATH (aka $:) then, with bar.rb/foo.rb in $HOME

	require "foo"

will make Ruby looking in "/usr/local/lib/ruby" and "/tmp", not in $HOME.

What you want is something like the following:

	BASE_DIR = File.dirname(File.expand_path($0))
	
	$: << BASE_DIR
	
	require "foo"
