Escape out of autotest.  Usually with autotest you hit CTRL-C to run  
all of the tests (again).  Hitting Control-C twice gets you back to  
the command line.

This is actually a bug w/ rspec_autotest, because CTRL-C also shuts  
down rake.  rspec_autotest is run through rake, so to re-run all of  
your specs (not just the failing ones), you will have to exit the  
application and run it again (even though autotest claims otherwise).

Aslak, Thanks for the input on rake.
