Probably manually rescuing your debugger call would work:

With rspec I experience that if I make a bad query/ActiveRecord call that it flips out and fails the test, throwing me back to the command prompt. This is normally not a problem but getting rather annoying right now as I am trying to work out some rather complex logic. Any ideas if there is a way to bypass this situation?
