Actually, I was misreading the output in the run window, which was wrapping.

$  cucumber /Users/rick/mastermind/features/codebreaker_starts_game.feature
--format=html false
/Users/rick/.gem/ruby/1.8/gems/cucumber-0.3.1/bin/../lib/cucumber/step_mother.rb:125:in
`Given': Multiple step definitions have the same Regexp:
(Cucumber::Redundant)

features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:13:in `/^I am not yet playing$/'
features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:13:in `/^I am not yet playing$/'

	from /Users/rick/.gem/ruby/1.8/gems/cucumber-0.3.1/bin/../lib/cucumber/step_mother.rb:124:in
`each'
	from /Users/rick/.gem/ruby/1.8/gems/cucumber-0.3.1/bin/../lib/cucumber/step_mother.rb:124:in

If I do this from the project directory:

 $ cucumber features/codebreaker_starts_game.feature
Feature: Codebreaker starts game
  As a Codebreaker
  I want to start a game
  So that I can break the code

  Scenario: Start game                                #
features/codebreaker_starts_game.feature:5
    Given I am not yet playing                        #
features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:13
    When I start a new game                           #
features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:24
    Then the game should say "Welcome to Mastermind!" #
features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:28
    And the game should say "Enter guess:"            #
features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:28

1 scenario
4 passed steps


Running under textmate, cucumber seems to be somehow convincing itself that
features/step_definitions/mastermind.rb:13:in `/^I am not yet playing$/'

Duplicates itself?!?
