Autotest stops running and I get a command prompt again.

Yes, I'm using a version from github, in a Rails 2.1 project.  rspec and 
rspec-rails are installed in vendor/plugins.      (as I understand it, 
from <a 
post</a>, rspec > 1.1.4 is necessary for Rails 2.1)

One of the projects in question is in fact a fork of Insoshi, the 
project referenced in that blog post I linked, so the copies of rspec 
I'm using is the same version as in their git repo.   The other is a 
personal project, but the plugins are checked out the same way (from 

I don't get this problem in another project I have, which is a R2.1 
project as well but which uses Test::Unit instead of rspec.   However, I 
have seen a similar problem (autotest quitting when errors are 
encountered) in that project in a similar version.

I think the next thing I'll try is changing or erasing my .autotest 
file.   There's very little in there - just some hooks for growl - but 
it's always possible that's what's different between my setup and that 
of other folks.
