Db:test:prepare interfering with rake spec pattern

I have a tricky problem with running rake spec in a Rails 3.0.3
project (using rspec-2.5.0, rspec-rails and rake 0.8.7). It may be
that this mailing list is not the correct one to ask for help, but I
am hoping that it is. When I run ‘rake spec’, the spec files for one
of the gems my project uses are executed in addition to the spec files
for my own project. I want to restrict the spec files that the rake
task runs so that only my own project specs are executed because there
is a conflict (from factory_girl) that gets triggered by the inclusion
of the specs from one of my gem dependencies.

I have created a custom rake task that calls the rspec rake task as
follows:

require ‘rake’
require ‘rspec/core/rake_task’

namespace :spec do
desc “Run specs without invoking bundler”
RSpec::Core::RakeTask.new(‘nob’ => ‘db:test:prepare’) do |t|
t.pattern = [‘spec/**/_spec.rb’, 'vendor/engines/proposals/spec/
**/
_spec.rb’]
t.skip_bundler = true
end
end

My task declares a dependency on the ‘db:test:prepare’ task. When the
db:test:prepare task runs, somehow the pattern that gets set by my
task is ignored and instead specs from one of the gems my project
depends on are executed in addition to my own project gems and this is
a big problem for me. I would like to trigger the db setup-related
activities that normally run before my specs execute. I haven’t been
able to figure out what is causing the ‘pattern’ I am declaring to be
ignored when db:test:prepare runs, but something is definitely
resetting the pattern (when I run my task without the
‘db:test:prepare’ dependency, only the specs from my project are
executed).

Any assistance would be appreciated.

What happens if you remove that dependency and run:

rake db:test:prepare
rake spec:nob

Any assistance would be appreciated.
