Hi,

I'm at my wits end :-)

I have a functional test that invokes the destroy action of one of my
controllers, this in turn removes a record from the database.  If I
run the test like this [ruby test/functionals/admin/
version_controller_test.rb], the test passes... as it should.

However, if I run rake test:functionals from my app dir, I get a
SystemStackError

If anyone has a clue as to what might be causing this, please let me
know.  Below is the stack trace:

Regards,
Steven
