Thanks, but it didn't work. The following somewhat ugly hack works
however.

module RSpec::Core
  class ExampleGroup
    def with_generator &block
      RSpec::Generator.with_generator &block
    end

    def setup_generator test_method_name=nil, &block
      RSpec::Generator.setup_generator test_method_name, &block
    end
  end
end
