It depends on rspec >= 1.2.9 (any version 1.2.9 and up). Bundler sees
that and installs the newest version of rspec, which in this case was

Whereas, rspec-rails-1.3.3 depends on rspec = 1.3.1 (only 1.3.1), so
it installs a compatible version.

Future releases of rspec will use "pessimistic" version constraints
for its requirements (see
http://docs.rubygems.org/read/chapter/16#page74), so this shouldn't be
a problem going forward.
