Sorry, but unless compelling evidence comes in, I'm gonna override. All the 1.3s that shipped since 1.9 have had the same issue.

Nobody (afaik) has been able to _properly_ upgrade 1.9 since 1.9 shipped (there are hacky ways, but I'm talking about gem update --system). We're trying to address that in ruby-core, but with the current situation with the 1.9 prelude there is little we can do at this point.
