(In short: bug fixed upstream, but affecting the version in Debian. Using the package from Ubuntu works.)
Seen on The Ruby Reflector (a blog aggregator for the Ruby community):
Under no circumstance should you install Ruby, Rubygems or any Ruby-related packages from apt-get. This system is out-dated and leads to major headaches. Avoid it for Ruby-related packages. We do Ruby, we know what’s best. Trust us.
It’s always nice to see people appreciate your work. :-)
