Which version of the rspec-rails gem are you using?

Can you check the value of RAILS_ENV before and after the connection  
adapter gets changed? There are plugins and various other things  
(including an old version of rspec-rails) that stomp on RAILS_ENV when  
they load. That might be the problem.
