[rspec-users] failing before :all doesn't move progress bar in html reports

I've found one bug when failing before :all block doesn't move html report's
progress bar correctly.

You can test it out easily by doing something like this:

describe "bad bad bad" do

before :all do
true.should be_false

it "empty" do


Now run this spec with html formatter and you should get 100% width to
rspec-header div, but it has width of 0%. When you add some other describe
blocks with specs then it would be something below 100%, but should be 100%
if everything is finished.

I've fixed this in my custom htmlformatter by adding these lines into
example_failed method prior invoking super:

def example_failed example, counter, failure

#some other stuff

    if example.description == "before(:all)"
      @example_number +=


If there's any better solution, please let me know :)
