That would be disappointing if it were accurate, but I don't see any reason
to think it is. In fact, I would be very surprised indeed to find that
PuppetLabs had intentionally broken anything in the open source project.
Indeed, the fact that it is open source rather protects against it, for any
breakage PL might hypothetically introduce could and surely would be fixed
by third parties. In all likelihood, the project would fork, which would
not be a good result for PL.

Instead, I think the Enterprise version adds careful installation
engineering and testing (among other things) to ensure that everything
works out of the box. That includes managing third party gems -- versions,
installation locations, etc. -- so that they work correctly with the Puppet
installation. There are any number of ways they otherwise might fail to do
so, by no fault of PL's, and I think it's likely that you have stumbled on
one of those.
