I noticed that compared with rails2.3 with rspec1.3, rails3 takes much
longer time for me to execute rspec and cucumber, and the cpu is

It seems it takes most of the time for loading the environment; the
actual execution is fast. For example, to execute the following
scenarios, it takes about 10 seconds wall clock time. Is this normal?
