[BioRuby] superclass mismatch for class EMBL

When trying to run 'ruby embl.rb' in the lib/bio/db/embl/ directory, I
get a 'superclass mismatch' error:
  embl.rb:54: superclass mismatch for class EMBL (TypeError)

That line 54 reads: class EMBL < EMBLDB

I haven't been able to figure out where that exactly comes from. The
EMBL class is only defined in this file, so it looks like that is not
the problem. However, the EMBLDB class is defined in the
lib/bio/db/embl/common.rb file ("class EMBLDB") as well as in the
lib/bio/db.rb file ("class EMBLDB < DB"). Can that result in this error?
