Problem regarding folder based fixtures and test code

We use folder based fixtures for each controllers and models.
Here is how we load them in test classes,

  fixtures :shippers, :users, :user_types
  def fixture_path
    File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), "../fixtures/shipper_controller")

Now individually each test code passes But testing the project(running
all test at once) fails for some test code. We are assuming that some
fixtures are not cleaned or some fixtures caused error inserting in

We used FixtureScenarios plugin to resolve that problem.
But FixtureScenarios do not provide facilities for flexible fixture as
it was originally developed for rails 1.1.6

How people organize test fixtures?
Do they use folder based fixture as we do?
If people use folder based fixture then is any one facing problem?

Hi Jeff,
