Those paths suggest that you may be using Ruby 1.9.1, which has lots
of gnarly bugs (and won't work at all with Rails 3.0, if that's
relevant for you).  If you have the option, switch to 1.9.2 or 1.8.7.

For this particular 1.9.1 issue, I've had success on 'nix and OSX by
calling "Gem.loaded_specs" before requiring the gem.  See if that
works for you too.
