For some reason, autospec has stopped working on one of my pure ruby

I'm not sure whether or not this was before of after I updated to RSpec

Spec's which run fine using the textmate rspec bundle's runner fail with
autospec, with a 'undefined method describe' error.

I'm sure that it's some configuration error, but so far googling has not
brought any joy.

Any help appreciated.

> 'undefined method describe' error.

This has nothing to do with your problem, but I thought it was kind of
funny. I was working on a little non-Rails project myself, and got the
'undefined method describe' error with the following code:

require 'rubygems'
require 'spec'

describe 'nothing' do
  it 'should fail' do
    1.should == 2

What was especially frustrating was that this code worked perfectly well
irb. I got as far as composing a message to post here, when I realized
perhaps spec.rb was not the best name for this file. :)
