Ahh... I didn't notice that you said you were using TestUnit. Sorry
about not catching on sooner.... The cucumber autotest integration was
developed with autospec and rspec in mind. I wouldn't be surprised if
it never was tested with testunit so it might have some rough edges.
Peter Jaros, the one who wrote the plugin, explained how the plugin is
suppose to work/behave in the wiki:
(under 'What does it do?')
After reading the wiki I think what you are seeing is the expected
behaviour. I don't think it is suppose to run the features until all
your tests are passing.
