A failure that escapes my comprehension

In master, I've the following failure:

 12) Failure:
test_check_executable_overwrite_default_bin_dir(TestGemInstaller)
[C:/Users/Luis/Projects/oss/rubygems/rubygems/test/rubygems/test_gem_installer.rb:149]:
--- expected

-"\"executable\" from a conflicts with
C:/Users/Luis/Projects/oss/rubygems/rubygems/tmp/test/test_rubygems_3892/tmp/test/test_rubygems_3892/gemhome/bin/executable"
+"\"executable\" from a conflicts with installed executable from conflict"

The error message comes from Gem::Installer#check_executable_overwrite

What I don't understand is why is triggering a ruby_executable
(conflict = "installed executable...")

PS: some single quotes will make more easy to spot what is the message
and what represents an executable or a gem. Gem named "a" confuses in
the generated language for non-english native speakers (at least it
does for me)
