Thanks! that is helping, its all from rubygems 
'rubygems/gem_path_searcher.rb' file, just seems very excessive. My gem 
is 'commander' and it searches for mine in a good 25 locations or so, 
then moves on to looking for Win32API  and termios in at least 200 
directories :S, neither of which I am using, the only library I am using 
is highline, which does not require those either... just seems odd 
unless im completely retarded and something is brutally wrong with my 
requires

$:.unshift File.dirname(__FILE__)

require 'rubygems'
require 'highline/import'
require 'commander/version'
require 'commander/user_interaction'
require 'commander/fileutils'
require 'commander/core_ext'
require 'commander/runner'
require 'commander/command'
require 'commander/help_formatters'
require 'commander/import'
