Hello. I just ran into an error I wanted to share.

The error message is below. I tracked down the error to the following
conditions:
1. I am using the new version of Watir (1.6.2)
2. This version of Watir uses the "user-choices" gem (from Marick)
3. This gem does not load Test::Unit, but does define a Test constant
(not
sure why, but Marick likes testing)
4. Rspec thinks that Test::Unit has been loaded (even though it hasn't)
because the Test constant is defined.

As a result, my rspec script gives me this error. Any suggestions?
Increase
the guard on the failing method call?

Bret, try requiring test/unit before requiring rspec.
I think this has to do with Rails trying to reopen a test/unit module
that doesn't exists (since test/unit was not required), so it defines
the Test module instead.

File it on lighthouse.  I cued David into this bug @ rubyconf, and he
seemed somewhat surprised by it.  No doubt, it has something to do
with active_record/active_support requiring test/unit.
