Alas no.

I'm getting expected: "1"
                         got: "0"

on a simple should change(Model, :count).by(1)

It follows the specific model around as well.  If I change order of the fit
table or not (the fit table has 20 rows of different models all being
exercised the same way, they are part of a replication tool that copies a
database).  The only time it passes is when I run the feature independently.

I guess I'll have to look at what the difference is between ( rake features
|| cucumber features/* ) and cucumber features/specific.feature and try and
hunt down what beginning state I could be missing.

Any other ideas?
