Summary: gem install failing because of permission errors

Initial Comment:
1.3.6 seems to have broken the ability to install gems in your home directory...

matt$ gem install treetop
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)
    You don't have write permissions into the /usr/bin directory.

with 1.3.5 and earlier, this command would result in text saying something like "installed in ~/.gem because /usr/bin/ not writable" and a successfull install.
