[TxMt] Bug in ruby bundle

This is a problem with the Ruby Macro that triggers on }. It's  
intended to skip past any } at the current position, the purpose  
being because of the snippet that inserts #{} when you type # in a  
string. This way you can type } to go past the end, just like if you  
were using smart typing. Unfortunately I can't figure out a good way  
to fix the macro to not screw up so badly when triggered the way you  
are doing it.

My suggest would be to remove both the } macro and the # snippet (the  
# snippet constantly annoys me because I type #{ and end up with # 
{{}} ), but at least one other person wants to keep the # snippet, so  
I'm not sure what the proper response is.
