Its a bug somewhere, but where exactly is uncertain still.

Did source_cache already exist, or were these systems virgin?

There have been problems with source_cache being hosed since RubyGems  
0.9.0, but I'm unsure if that's due to RubyGems changes or Ruby  
changes.  I'm trying to collect corrupt source_cache files to  
reproduce the problem.
