The regular expression in rspec-core 2.3.0 ( lib/autotest/rspec2.rb: 16 )

self.failed_results_re = /^\s_\d+).\n\s+Failure.(?:\n.)?(\n\s+#\s(.)?:\d+(?::._)?)+$/m

Doesn't match failed specs correctly with autotest-standalone when colours are used in the output. This causes unexpected behaviour with autotest and prevents cucumber from correctly running features at appropriate moments.

Patch at => https://gist.github.com/740549

self.failed_results_re = /^\s_\d+).\n\s+(?:\e[\d_m)?Failure.(?:\n.)?(\n(?:\e[\d_m)?\s+#\s(.)?:\d+(?::._)?)+$/m

Is the original regular expression modified to correct this behaviour by ignoring colour codes.
