when i said "use the 'reportbug' cmdline tool" i meant "please use the
'reportbug' cmdline" tool, like that:

     reportbug gem

'reportbug' is a tool installed on Debian and derivatives to report bugs
against system installed packages.
since the bug you are experiencing has nothing to do with Gem itself but
*only* with the "gem" package provided by your distribution, you should
report a bug with your distribution, and not on the pd-gem sourceforge
bugtracker (and not at all at the pure-data sourceforge bugtracker).

this is explained here


(ah yes, 'reportbug' is for reporting bugs against Debian, not
necessarily against ubuntu; since i believe that he bug is really in the
Debian packaging (Ubuntu usually doesn't add much on top of the Debian
packages), it should probably reported as I said)
