[rspec-users] Ruby Debugger - not working in rspec?

Hi David,

I found the problem.

I had --drb option on, which caused all sorts of problems with the debugger.
It would just skip right through the breakpoint/debugger statements with the
--drb option on. Even though spork wasn't running.

Removing the option got the debugger back on track.

Cheers,
Jason
