Odd behaviour using RSpec from Rakefile

I’m using RSpec with rake, with specs in the “spec” directory,
and the SpecTask is called :test.

When I run “rake test”, the ARGV from rake gets picked up by
the RSpec option parser, which adds it (in option_parser.rb:123)
to the @files list. That means that later, rspec decides that
there should be a directory called “test”, and an exception is
thrown from spec/runner/options.rb:216, in files_to_load.

I don’t know what the expected behaviour is here, but I know that
this isn’t it! It seems that RSpec shouldn’t be using ARGV here,
since rake, not rspec, is the main program.

Can someone please comment on the correct way to fix this?

The best way to get things fixed in RSpec is to enter a ticket in
RSpec’s tracker at http://rspec.lighthouseapp.com.
