I am facing two more issues with rspec+rcov

   - We are using Hudson as our CI environments. I am using rake plugin
   which allows to execute rake tasks on the CI server. When there are some
   spec failures in our app the 'rake spec' tasks returns proper exit code
   which Hudson identifies as a build failure, but when you run 'rake
   spec:rcov', even when the specs are failing, may be the exit code is such
   that Hudson is not able to identify the build has failed.
   - When I run rcov, it also analyses the files in the spec folder for
   coverage which is giving me wrong coverage statistics. I have tried setting
   the options to exclude specific folders through rcov.opts, but it doesn't
   seem to work for a Rails 3 setup (RSpec 2). For my previous project on Rails
   2.3.8 (RSpec 1.3) it used to work fine and the spec folders were excluded
   while doing coverage calculations.
