[rspec-users] Autospec Infinite Loop ??

When I run autospec and I have a red example, autospec goes into an
infinite loop and runs over and over until I get rid of the red.

I hate this.  I want my tests to just run once when my ruby file is
saved - even if I have red examples.

The infinite loop does not happen if my examples are all green, all
yellow or a mix of green and yellow.

I have tried ZenTest 3.11, Zentest 4.0, and autotest (http://

Is there a way to make autospec run just once if it sees a red

I am using rspec 1.2.2, platform: cygwin - testing a standalone ruby
