Right; I’m not too fluent in RSpec yet (in particular, I didn’t use
any pending specs yet), so I just wanted to ask around before filing
a ticket.

Most appreciated! I’ll wait for RSpec 1.1.2
before switching to Ruby 1.9 in full then.

BTW: The tracker says 1.1.2 ‘is 11 months late’ and ‘Expected: Jan 17th,
2007’. Is 1.1.2 expected in two weeks’ time and it should be 2008 there?

Sorry for not explaining this one. This is with using `spec -c -D u` on
Ubuntu (with diff-lcs installed) – I keep running into an ‘uninitialized
constant Spec::Runner::Options::PLATFORM’ error, hence the simplest
above workaround. Might be a bug in Ruby 1.9 not scoping the class
constants properly, though.

With a barometer, silly.         -- John Hatpin and Stan, afca
