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:
....
  - GEM PATHS:
     - /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.
So:
require 'rubygems'
require 'mygem'
will fail
but......
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 :)
