Although RUBYLIB and RUBYOPTS are cleared by Ocra, if an Ocra-executable that uses Bundler is run from another instance of Ruby that is using Bundler, then it will think that it should use the calling instance's gemfile and will fail. To combat this, clearing the Bundler environment variables when starting the executable allows this to work.

# This will fail, since the ocra-app will try to use the Gemfile from the calling application.
require 'bundler/setup'
exec 'ocra_app_that_uses_bundler.exe'

This is probably not a bug. You should use the following code to run another process from within a ruby app that uses Bundler:

Bundler.with_clean_env do
  exec 'ocra_app_that_uses_bundler.exe'

Ah, that is good to know! Bundler is filled with black arts:)
