Local gems not loaded in ruby > 1.9 without custom_require

I have a Kubuntu 9.10 64bit installation. I run ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.1
next to eachother.
gem1.9.1 env returns:

    • /usr/lib/ruby1.9.1/gems/1.9.1
    • /home/username/.gem/ruby/1.9.1

      but gems installed locally are not found by using require.
      require ‘rubygems’
      require ‘mygem’
      will fail
      require ‘rubygems/custom_require’
      require ‘mygem’
      is ok.
      Is this an installation issue or due to the fact that gems are supposed
      to load using a ruby installation even without requiring rubygems.

It is not a major issue, but nice if things work out of the box :slight_smile:
