OK, so it wasn't that.  I did a git pull and then checked-out 1.1.4 and
it still behaved the same way (but it might be nice to tell people that
the git clone they get might need updating before it can be checked out
- I am trying to work that one out still)

It occurred to me that I had the rspec gem installed (this will at least
partly give the chance to have a laugh at me...) so I tried putting a
require 'rubygems'
in script\spec.  Voila, I can now run single tests using
ruby script\spec path\to\spec
with success.  However,
rake spec
still does nothing (well, nothing visible)
The odd thing is, as I was typing this, it occurred to me I had removed
the rspec gem when trying to get the plugin to work.  So I checked, and,
sure enough, no rspec gem.

I think I must be a bear of very little brain, because I cannot for the
life of me work out what is going on!
