I'm stuck! Not sure what I'm missing but I'm struggling to get a shared
example group working with my controller specs.  Here is a piece of the
backtrace:

/Users/20217633/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p0 at rails3/gems/rspec-core-2.0.0.rc/lib/rspec/core/example_group.rb:68:in
`it_should_behave_like': Could not find shared example group named "an admin
is logged in" (RuntimeError)

`describe'
from
/Users/20217633/apps/curriculum/spec/controllers/users_controller_spec.rb:3:in
`<top (required)>'

I'm using the following:

rails 3.0
rspec-rails 2.0.0.rc (and friends)
cucumber-rails 0.3.2
factory_girl_rails 1.0


And the following for shared examples:

module ExampleGroupMethods

  describe "an admin is logged in", :shared => true do
    before(:each) do
      controller.stubs(:logged_in? => true)
      controller.stubs(:current_user => Factory.create(:admin))
    end
  end

  describe "a supporter is logged in", :shared => true do
    before(:each) do
      controller.stubs(:logged_in? => true)
      controller.stubs(:current_user => Factory.create(:supporter))
    end
  end

  describe "a manager is logged in", :shared => true do
    before(:each) do
      controller.stubs(:logged_in? => true)
      controller.stubs(:current_user => Factory.create(:manager))
    end
  end

end


And the follow controller spec:

describe UsersController do

  it_should_behave_like "an admin is logged in"

  describe "handling /users" do

    before do
      @user = mock_model(User)
    end

    def do_get
      get :index
    end

    it "should assign users to the view" do
      User.should_receive(:all).with(:order => "last_name,
first_name").and_return([ @user ])
      do_get
    end

  end

end


And finally this spec_helper:

# This file is copied to spec/ when you run 'rails generate rspec:install'
ENV["RAILS_ENV"] ||= 'test'
require File.expand_path("../../config/environment", __FILE__)
require 'rspec/rails'

# Requires supporting ruby files with custom matchers and macros, etc,
# in spec/support/ and its subdirectories.
Dir[Rails.root.join("spec/support/**/*.rb")].each {|f| require f}

RSpec.configure do |config|
  # == Mock Framework
  #
  # If you prefer to use mocha, flexmock or RR, uncomment the appropriate
line:
  #
  # config.mock_with :mocha
  # config.mock_with :flexmock
  # config.mock_with :rr
  config.mock_with :rspec

  # Remove this line if you're not using ActiveRecord or ActiveRecord
fixtures
  # config.fixture_path = "#{::Rails.root}/spec/fixtures"

  # If you're not using ActiveRecord, or you'd prefer not to run each of
your
  # examples within a transaction, remove the following line or assign false
  # instead of true.
  config.use_transactional_fixtures = true

  # see http://asciicasts.com/episodes/157-rspec-matchers-macros
  config.include(ControllerMacros, :type => :controller)

  # see http://pastie.org/870928
  config.include(ExampleGroupMethods, :type => :controller)
end


Anyone have a suggestion?  Thanks in advance
