Have you tried this? What /should/ happen is that RubyGems detects
the gem in the gem path and uninstalls it from there. I don't think
we should need a the equivalend of the --install-dir flag for uninstall.
If it is not working as described, then please do file a bug report
as Eric has suggested.

Yep, this one sounds like a real bug (and should be filed).
Thanks for the feedback.
