That's what I wound up doing

Interesting - I think it should definitely be configurable from  
Cucumber, rather than reuse the RSpec config - I want rescue_action  
bypassed in RSpec and honoured in Cucumber...

I've had a bit of a poke around and think I can do something along the  
lines of Cucumber::Rails.use_transactional_fixtures

I'll submit a patch to that Lighthouse ticket in the morning.
