[rspec-users] ArgumentError in "is a pending example" - block not supplied

We have a few unfinished examples in our code of the form

	it "should and does do something" do
		# stuff

	it "should do something someday"

	it "should and does do something else" do
		# more stuff
Now since I upgraded my gem to rspec 1.8 today, the empty example is  
failing with the error ArgumentError in "should do something someday":  
block not supplied

Is this by design?

What's the recommended way to deal with these pending examples? write  
a block and call pending within it?
