According to http://clarkware.com/cgi/blosxom/2005/10/24, instantiated
fixtures have been turned off by default in rails since version 1.0.
I don't know when rspec_on_rails turned them off by default.

The reason is that the new defaults give significant performance gains
over the old defaults.  (See the above link for more details.)
