Could reproduce this:

  - GEM PATHS:
     - D:/Users/Luis/ruby/ruby-186-p114-VC6-rubygems-111/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

gem list mongrel

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

mongrel (1.1.4)

gem uninstall mongrel

uccessfully uninstalled mongrel-1.1.4-x86-mswin32-60
Remove executables:
        mongrel_rails

in addition to the gem? [Yn]
Removing mongrel_rails

====

Maybe there is something in GEM_HOME or GEM_PATH affecting your results?
