[rspec-users] Trouble making rspec-rails 2 work with webrat.

Hi David,

I am using the current versions of everything rspec
rspec (2.2.0,)
rspec-core (2.2.1)
rspec-expectations (2.2.0)
rspec-mocks (2.2.0,)
rspec-rails (2.2.0)
webrat (0.7.2)
rails(3.0.3)

webrat is in Gemfile...

group :test, :development do
  gem 'webrat'
  gem 'rspec-rails'
end

My spec is meant to be an integration test and as such is in spec/
requests

I have a pretty simple setup, the full source is here...

Thanks for the help, its odd so many people are having issues with
webrat, should I cross post to their group or is this an rspec/webrat/
rails3 issue?
