I notice the error happens in rubygems/custom_require.rb and that
you're using rspec-core from a global gem directory. Could it be that
you upgraded some gems recently? Perhaps this gem is also a dependency
for your project and it has a bug. What does
/home/rich/Documents/fakemap/rspec/block.rb line 1 contain?
