[rspec-users] Windows rspec "gem install win32console"

My rails app seems to be broken today (pgsql 8.2 problem), but I ran
the specs successfully yesterday. Rails 1.2.2, rspec 0.8.2,
win32console 1.0.8.

I'm kind of a power user though. My Start => All Programs menu fills
my entire screen, and I have all the UnxUtils binaries in my path. :-]
