I have an Rails Engine. If I want to start rails server inside this spec/dummy folder it give me this error (trace trap)

dummy git/master ✖ r s
=> Booting WEBrick
=> Rails 3.1.0 application starting in development on
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
[2011-09-26 18:12:11] INFO  WEBrick 1.3.1
[2011-09-26 18:12:11] INFO  ruby 1.9.2 (2010-08-18) [x86_64-darwin11.0.1]
[2011-09-26 18:12:11] INFO  WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=9220 port=3000

[1] 9220 trace trap rails s

Is it because I am not supposed to run rails server inside a test/dummy folder?

Update: This does not happen with sqlite3 database. But if swap with "pg" gem, the trace trap happen :(
