I'd still like to know why this is the case. We don't want to ship 
RubyGems as "jgem" in JRuby. If anything, we might call it "jem", but I 
strongly prefer just leaving it as "gem".

Eric suggested, and was correct, that this was an issue with JRuby not 
calling yaml_initialize when reconstituting objects from YAML. I've 
fixed that on JRuby trunk and removed the to_ints hack. Thanks!
