Maybe the newly released 5.0.12 fix the issue.

We confirm the issue. Until we can figure out the problem and a fix, we have put back an old version of bundler in kali-rolling (1.16.1-3). The issue is introduced by the way bundler is packaged in 1.17.3-3. It moved the files from the usual /usr/lib/ruby/ to /usr/share/rubygems-integrations/all/gems/
