Autospec not triggering retests with jRuby/MacOS 10.5

I have been trying to get autospec to work for week now and it is
driving me creazy. I am on MacOs X 10.5 and I am using jRuby 1.1.5
binary with jdbc mysql adapter and rails 2.2.2 I tried the rspec and
rspec-rails gems and plugins but nothing seems to work.

Whenever I run jruby -S script/autospec it runs the specs but once I
start editing it does not trigger the retesting. When I run jruby -S
autotest it only gives me “loading autotest/rails” and it keeps loading
for ever… nothing happens.

I would really like this to work. Has anyone had similar issues? I’d
really appreciate the help.
