So you are using scenarios to get the browser into a certain state and
then the next scenario relies on continuing work on that state?
I guess this must mean one scenario failing breaks all following
scenarios in the feature?

A bit of a side note but can I ask why you need the browser to close
after a scenario or feature?
In Selenium (not sure if Watir is the same) the time expense of starting
a new browser instances per scenario or per feature is too high (It can
take 7/8 seconds for selenium to start a browser). So rather than
closing and opening new browsers we use a single browser instance open
throughout the test run. We terminate the session before each scenario
(By accessing logout).
