bundler does not work as advertised!

I changed some gem versions in my Gemfile, and then I did:

$ bundle install

Your bundle is complete! Use `bundle show [gemname]` to see where a
bundled gem is installed.

Now I want to run spork 0.8.4 (as listed in the Gemfile):

$ bundle exec spork
/Users/Me/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p180@rails3tutorial/gems/spork-0.9.0.rc8/lib/spork/test_framework/cucumber.rb:2:

Using RSpec
Loading Spork.prefork block...
Spork is ready and listening on 8989!

It appears to me that the spork version being executed is the version
that used to be in the Gemfile--not the version that is currently
specified in the gemfile. I don't really care what version of spork
executes, but autotest stopped working when I updated some gems to newer
versions in my Gemfile, so I tried specifying all the old versions
again, but spork

Here is the autotest error:

/Users/Me/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p180/bin/ruby -rrubygems -S

I changed some gem versions in my Gemfile, and then I did:

What does
bundle show spork
show?

Colin

$ bundle show spork
/Users/Me/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p180@rails3tutorial/gems/spork-0.8.4

$ bundle show spork

/Users/Me/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p180@rails3tutorial/gems/spork-0.8.4

Hi, please do the following:

$ bundle update spork

$ bundle exec spork

Good luck,

I get the same autotest error after doing that.

I get the same autotest error after doing that.

Can you execute your tests without spork and autotest? If so, can you

execute your test with spork?

Yes.

If so, can you
execute your test with spork?

I don't know what that means. In any case, I deleted my whole gemset
and started over, and now I can run autotest again.

I was trying to get you to go through a process of elimination.
