Has anyone experienced this problem:

jdf at host29 703 /Users/jdf/bin % gem -v
jdf at host29 704 /Users/jdf/bin % sudo gem update --system
Updating RubyGems
Updating rubygems-update
Successfully installed rubygems-update-1.3.1
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (NameError)
    undefined local variable or method `remote_gemspecs' for
jdf at host29 705 /Users/jdf/bin % gem -v
jdf at host29 706 /Users/jdf/bin % sudo gem update --system

Nothing to update
jdf at host29 707 /Users/jdf/bin % gem -v
jdf at host29 708 /Users/jdf/bin % rehash
jdf at host29 709 /Users/jdf/bin % gem -v

I also downloaded the .gem file for 1.3.1 and installed it, but still
only had 1.2 returned from 'gem -v'.
I finally downloaded the .tgz file and was able to install 1.3.1.
