Its a rails 2.3.5 app. I'm using the rspec and cucumber for testing. When I run autospec, it runs correctly with the warning (Not running features. To run features in autotest, set AUTOFEATURE=true.) as below:

[~/rails_apps/automation (campaign)?] ? autospec 
(Not running features.  To run features in autotest, set AUTOFEATURE=true.)

Now, as it suggests, when I run AUTOFEATURE=true autospec, the specs runs and the cuke features as well. But the problem is that it won't stop. It runs the features and runs them again and again in a loop. It doesn't stop after it fails. Is this due to the warning Warning: $KCODE is NONE as shown below??
