Hello, I can't update (install gem) with non english user name on Windows Web Server 2008 Russian
I have tried :

gem update --system
gem install mechanize

ERROR: While executing gem ... (Errno::ENOENT)
         No such file or directory - C:\Users\Администратор

After some googling, have readed about non ascii sysbols issue, and have created new user - Adm,
and have tried again

gem update --system   - result - nothing to update
gem install mechanize - result - successfull installed

gem - v
ruby -v

    Sounds like a bug with how RubyGems handles paths on Windows. if you're willing to get a patch together, please feel free to submit one!
