I had the same problem while developming my scripts.

RSpec changed the way paths get loaded by autotest, so I'll suggest
you create a mappins in your .autotest file similar to the one from
rspec-rails, since seems the one in rspec no longer "maps" properly:


And this:


I cannot find my customized version (for a console based MVC, it's on
backup now).

Or maybe I'm missing the need to set AUTOTEST and RSPEC env variables first?

disinclination to do so.
