Frustratingly, no. I tried to reproduce it with what I remember I had 
yesterday, but the bug that triggered the river of rspec debugging code 
has yet to resurface. (I think it had something to do with calling to_s 
on mock objects in a certain way, but I can't seem to remember.)

Basically, what I was trying to say was that I was hoping that if you 
had something like

   language = mock_model(Language)

then later called


it would say something along the lines of "you've called a mock object's 
method that you forgot to stub", but I see that it already does this 
under normal conditions.

I'll let you know if I find the bug again.
