[TxMt] Re: "no such file to load" error on require in Ruby Run command

Sorry for not mentioning the TM version. This behavior existed as originally
described before the upgrade to the newest version [Version 1.5.8
(1498)] this morning. After I sent the previous message, I upgraded & now
the problem occurs every time, not just the first time. At least it's more
consistent now.
This script has been in almost daily use for over a year, with no recent
changes. I always run it from within TM since I've been too lazy to add
proper parameter handling to the script. I just launch it in TM, comment in
or out a line or two at the very bottom that controls what gets done, and
hit cmd-R.

The require is at line 56 because the script includes several embedded
classes in the same file. Poor form, I know, but it was one of those, "I'll
get around to it later" things that I've never gotten around to because "it
just worked".

Here's a snippet beginning at line 55:

class PostagePrinter
  require "builder"
  require "tempfile"

Okay - I've found a difference between TM environment & command line:

The TM execution window shows "ruby 1.8.6 (2008-03-03 patchlevel 114)

>From terminal: "ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i686-darwin9.2.0]"

Suggestions on where to look to resolve the different versions of ruby that
are being picked up?
