How’s that for being helpful?

Hmm, I’m trying to run migrations, stupid…

I finally traced the problem (using git bisect !) to this:

lib/tasks/cucumber.rake

1 $:.unshift(RAILS_ROOT + /vendor/plugins/cucumber/lib)
2 require cucumber/rake/task
3
4 namespace :test do
5 desc "Runs the Cucumber features tests (integration tests)"
6 Cucumber::Rake::Task.new(:features) do |t|
7 ENV["RAILS_ENV"] = RAILS_ENV = "test"
8 Rake::Task["db:test:prepare"].invoke
9 Rake::Task["db:fixtures:load"].invoke
10 t.cucumber_opts = "—format pretty"
11 end
12 end

Can you spot the error? The problem originates with setting RAILS_ENV in this code block. But isn’t the block supposed to be executed later? When the block is #call’ed? Very strange. At the moment, I simply commented out the line, but that’s going to bite me in a couple moments when I’m ready to test my features again… Oh joy of debugging!

Just in case you spot me in the crowd, here’s what I look like:
