Yeah, I was just about to post about this. This seems like incorrect
behavior. Especially if you're really doing behavior driven design. You're
going to be writing your tests and using the test environment first before
you actually go through and use the dev env. When specs are run it should
run all migrations for the test db, not just as far as dev has gone.
