yes this happened to me a while ago, can't remember what os. I am not
sure I was using gem either. the reason i am so forgetful is that:
-it probably it went away
-or it is in a computer i don't often use.
I'll let you know if I find it again.

sorry for being unhelpful, but at least you know this has happened to someone.
