Have you configured your .autotest file with an Autotest hook?

This is from the cucumber Autotest Integration, but, I'm not certain if its
appropriate for Rails 1.3.3

Autotest.add_hook :initialize do |at|
  # Ignore files in tmp/
  at.add_exception %r%^\./tmp%

I was running into the same issue myself.
