I said I'm using the newest version on the repository, but I mean that the
newest version of rspec1's repository.
I didn't try it on rspec2 because according to rspec2's git repository, it
doesn't support rails 2 and I'm using rails 2.
Sorry about the lack of the information in my report.

Cheers,
Nori
