To me it still looks broken, unfortunately:

flomac:vendor febeling$ rubygems-svn/bin/gem install activesupport -i tmptrunk/
Successfully installed activesupport-2.1.1
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for activesupport-2.1.1...
Installing RDoc documentation for activesupport-2.1.1...
flomac:vendor febeling$ rubygems-svn/bin/gem uninstall activesupport
-i tmptrunk/

Select gem to uninstall:
 1. activesupport-1.4.2
 2. activesupport-2.1.0
 3. All versions
> ^CERROR:  Interrupted

Please note that it does not offer the newly installed version
2.1.1 for uninstallment, only my real one, 2.1.0.

This is the trunk (r1868) version.
