I think RAILS_ENV is getting set incorrectly, but I don't know exactly how to find out where. At the bottom of Rails::Initializer.run do |config| in environment.rb, RAILS_ENV is the correct value (staging, development, production, etc). Just below the initializer block, RAILS_ENV has changed to 'test'. Any ideas?

Turns out it was happening when rpsec-rails was being loaded. Conditional loading for the test environment solved this: config.gem 'rspec-rails', :lib => 'spec/rails', :version => '1.1.11' if RAILS_ENV == 'test'
