Rake test:units -> table already exists


When I run test:units, rails complains about the tables already being
present. They had to be present so I could run individual unit tests. So
why doesn’t rails just drop the tables if they exist?

Any ideas??


debug oupt below:

rake test:units --trace

** Execute environment

** Invoke environment
** Execute db:schema:dump
** Execute db:test:clone
** Invoke db:schema:load (first_time)
** Invoke environment
** Execute db:schema:load

Are you using any plugins… I recall seeing this when a plugin was
misbehaving a while ago.
