Rubygems 1.3.5 can't load 'rubygems/defaults/operating_sy..'

Hello,

I had troubles using net-ssh gem and when debugged my script it raised
the following:

$ruby -dw sshtry.rb
Exception LoadError' at /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:1113 - no such file to load -- rubygems/defaults/operating_system ExceptionNoMethodError’ at /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rational.rb:78 -

I also posted this trace in
http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/199606#869591, where I went from google,
couse Abigail seems to have the same trouble with another library.

I’ve looked into rubygems.rb and it tries to load this file
‘rubygems/defaults/operating_system’, but the entire ‘rubygems/defaults’
directory is missing. There is only a file ‘defaults.rb’

I saw in http://rubygems.rubyforge.org/rdoc/History_txt.html that this
is ‘required’ since rubygems 1.2.0…

I’ve tryied reinstalling rubygems (with apt-get purge and install later)
on ubuntu 9.10 and got no fix.

Here are my env. data:
