What you are looking for is the string:

Form.reset("tag_form")

Ignore the escaping backslashes in the output from the matcher. To  
tell have_text that it can appear anyplace in the body of the  
response, use the regex /Form.reset("tag_form")/ in your call to  
have_text.

So, this should work:

response.should have_text(/Form.reset("tag_form")/)

Hope this works for you. Oh, and you might want to branch out and make  
sure that the content-type is text/javascript.
