Rabbi Meir and Rabbi Yehudah both agree that there is a disagreement; they
disagree about what the disagreement is about.

My problem is that through the disagreement between Rabba and Rava, we get
a sense that the Gemara rules like Rabbi Yehudah; otherwise the Gemara's
interpretation of their disagreement makes little sense.

Which either means that the Gemara contradicts the later ruling of Rambam,
or that the Gemara is difficult, or that I missed some nuance.
