Summary: requiring rubygems should not create $HOME/.gem

Initial Comment:
hi,

while debugging one of my ruby apps i noticed that a simple "require 'rubygems'" is enough to get the whole ~/.gem/ directory structure created.

i think those directories should only be created when you call the gem cmdline tool.
