[rspec-users] rspec failure upon revisit

Looks like it  " expected following output to contain a <title>Sign
up</title>
tag:" and the output's title tag is "<title>Ruby on Rails Tutorial Sample
App | </title>".

I am pretty new to rspec and testing in general, but it looks like fixing
the page title will make this test pass.
