There was a change that broke this behaviour, but it was documented in 
the History and how to get back the old behaviour:

=== Version 1.2.0 / 2009-03-15

* warnings:

  * If you use the ruby command to run specs instead of the spec 
command, you'll
    need to require 'spec/autorun' or they won't run. This won't affect 
you if
    you use the spec command or the Spec::Rake::SpecTask that ships with 

So... just add a require 'spec/autorun' in your spec_helper.rb and you 
should be good to go.
