Spec_server and re-loads of files

I got spec_server working today, and was literally ecstatic about the
speed of response from running a spec. Yelps and all-sorts, very un-
British, I can tell you :wink:

However I’m starting to notice that it doesn’t seem to be picking up
changes. I’m working on a helper function at the moment, and I get a
different (old) test failure from spec -X as I do from straight up,
slow old spec.

rspec 1.1.12
rails 2.2

Any advice?

Make sure you have

config.cache_classes = false

in test.rb…

Yes!

… but it appears to totally bork the features, at least on our build
server. Anyone else had this problem, and got a workaround?

I’m actually running the features in a separate environment
(‘features’) locally, but I haven’t got around to persuading the build
server to do that yet.

Don’t version control config/environments/test.rb. Keep around config/
environments/test.rb.example, and copy it to test.rb after check out.

I’ve also found shared example groups to be quite buggy (not reloading)
