Oh... I see what you are saying now....


When I have had something like this in the past, I refactor my spec
code to not use any nesting at all and put all the pre conditions
inside of the it should block, that way you are sure you are not
getting some weird edge case on something.

Try it out.

it "should not pass" do
  every setup thing from every before block in here
  do the action

See what comes of that.
