On both my Mac (OS X 10.5.5) and my Linux box (Fedora Core 9), gems 1.2
needed the help of “gem install rubygems-update;update_rubygems” to get
to 1.3.0. Now, every time I do a “gem update --system”, it reinstalls
1.3.0, instead of claiming “Nothing to update”.
Is this a known problem with the transition to 1.3? Obviously, the
solution is “don’t do that, Jay”; I just want to make sure it’s not a
symptom of a deeper problem on my systems.
