Your understanding is correct ... however I believe the time stamp
resolution on the file system is 1 second (2 seconds on DOS FAT
files). In other words, Rake cannot tell that a file is "out of date"
if they are created in the same second.
Put a "sleep 2" in your Rakefile between each test and you should see
the proper output.

This is a bug in the 0.8.1 release of rake. If you load the gem from
the latest build on github, this should be corrected. I will probably
release 0.8.2 very soon.
