These variables are hard-coded into the RVM plugin. They are updated to refer to the latest ruby patches available.
RVM plugin: use latest rubies
Wouldn't it make more sense to automatically find the latest ruby 1.8 / 1.9 with something like rvm list | grep ruby-1.8 | sed -E 's/^.*ruby-(.*)\[.*$/\1/g' | tail -n1 ?
rvm list | grep ruby-1.8 | sed -E 's/^.*ruby-(.*)\[.*$/\1/g' | tail -n1
That would work. My script-fu is weak. I have an edge-case already. I installed a performance patch of 1.9 when I was playing with debugger, but it's largely obsolete now that someone else has picked up the project and made it work with stable 1.9.

I don't see where the problem is with the performance patch. Could you be more specific?
Ah, sorry. It isn't my default ruby, and it isn't even the preferred patch I'd like to use of all the 1.9's. I don't know how trivial it would be to make the choice of rubies interactive. Perhaps it's better to just use whatever ruby is designated as default.
Have a more recent version now. Thanks
