`gem install bundler` takes forever and lets build time out (JRuby)

I tried setting up my project `shoes4` on appveyor but the build times out lots of times on `gem install bundler`.

I know that this problem [happened before](http://help.appveyor.com/discussions/problems/691-ruby-gem-install-bundler-hanging) and the solution was to pre install bundler. However, I'm using (and have to) use JRuby which is not pre installed - so I have to install it myself.

I tried it with both JRuby 1.7.21 and JRuby but that doesn't seem to influence it. Sometimes it passes, sometimes it fails due to timeout on `gem install bundler`.

It'd be great to have JRuby preinstalled with bundler preinstalled (1.7. branch and branch - but that might be too much to ask). Are there other options?

For reference:

* [a working build[(https://ci.appveyor.com/project/PragTob/shoes4/build/1.0.7) - that one took a whopping 30 minutes for a simple `gem install bundler` as it can be seen in [the logs](https://ci.appveyor.com/api/buildjobs/v7984e6pkg10ewdv/log)
* [a failing build](https://ci.appveyor.com/project/PragTob/shoes4/build/1.0.8) - gem install bundler never finishes

It'd be great if this could be worked out (many people on Windows use JRuby and the JRuby project itself also wants to start using AppVeyor as they sometimes have problems with some windows support).

Cheers + thanks for providing a free for open source Windows CI <3

    Oh yes, for further reference the branch being build currently is the [appveyor branch on my fork of shoes4](https://github.com/PragTob/shoes4/tree/appveyor) if you want to look at the configuration file (basically downloads and installs JRuby then install bundler, does a `bundle install` and then runs the specs)

    Hi Tobi,

    So, basically, JRuby should be installed on build worker machines? Could it be conflicting with "regular" Ruby installation?

    Never mind, I've got it.

    Hi there,

    that would be one solution and that would certainly be great - so then I
    wouldn't have to set JRuby up myself.

    Overall, it'd still be interesting to find out why `gem install bundler`
    takes forever and fix that root cause :)

    I'd love to find the answer too, frankly :) as it takes long on regular Ruby too (not all versions).

    JRuby has been deployed to build workers: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/356
