i think it is a problem of:
- the libdir loader not being updated to Pd-0.47 yet
- Gem providing a Gem-meta.pd patch (pretending to be in libdir format
while in reality it is not).

this combination results in the libdir loader being the one who wins the
who-can-load-Gem competition if Gem is not in the very first path to be
searched, but then fails to properly load Gem.

i'll try to update the "libdir" loader asap (though probabaly after the
in the meantime try removing the Gem/Gem-meta.pd patch and see whether
it helps.
