Short version: The solution was indeed to downgrade to test-unit 1.2.3

gem 'test-unit', '1.2.3'

Longer version: I went through my github repository and found a version

of my gemfile that worked with rspec. I then carefully compared the two

versions and by process of elimination figured out what went wrong. My

earlier Gemfile did not specify test-unit. Ironically, I had seen this

solution posted on the internet and am convinced that I tried

test-unit 1.2.3 on several occasions, but either I was doing something

wrong, or bundler was confused, or somehow test-unit 2.x.x was sneaking

in even when I was explicitly calling 1.2.3 -- I'm happy to have specs

running again!
