My good ole' fat pig controllers, are now nice, slim and fancy :-)

It depends. Overall I try to take small steps at a time. But never ever
will I update the server code unless 100% specs pass!

As a habit I like to abuse of the save button even if I only corrected
some typos in comments, or changed the indentation. Suddenly autotest
would kick in for nothing.
Sometimes I save 4 files one after the other because I forgot about the
keyboard short cut for saving them all at once, and autospec will run 4
times instead of only once which is stupid. And growl will be notifying
me each time which is very distracting.
