I think that Antonio's claim that

    this should only be a problem on older systems, I would even say
    only in already non-supported Debian releases.

is wrong, at least regarding the second clause. This bug affects me on
Debian unstable, and will likely affect anybody who has been upgrading
between stable releases and who has not installed a more recent version
of ruby.

It's too late to fix this for bullseye, so I think it would be
worthwhile to add a release note so that users are aware of the
potential issue when upgrading to the next stable release.
