[rspec-users] Bash shim for Rspec

HI Folks,
The following script is *supposed* to run rspec under Jruby with the proper
Java-switch for using SWT with OSX (-XstartOnFirstThread).
The issue is that this script doesn't actually run any of the specs!
$ bin/rspec_auto_jvm spec/swt_shoes/app_spec.rb
args are  spec/swt_shoes/app_spec.rb

Can anyone point out the flaw?
