Installing the latest Rubygems gem on cygwin just gave me:

install user_interaction.rb /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems
install validator.rb /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems

I'm not sure which version I was updating from, and have forgotten how to
find out the versions I have.  Is this worth exploring further, or shall I
just leave it?

        Thank you,
