14.10 package rubygems-integration does not see newer versions of a gem

When I install package ruby-colorize, I have colorize-0.6.0.
This version has bugs.
When I then install version 0.7.5 (the newest version) with

$ gem install -r colorize

I have both version 0.6.0 and version 0.7.5 and I expect that the ruby statement:

require 'colorize'

will load version 0.7.5
This is not true: version 0.6.0 is loaded.
I can solve that by uninstalling the ruby-colorize package, which should not be 

I suspect (but am not sure) that the rubygems-integration package is the cause 
of this problem.
