The build has been broken since October 8: https://travis-ci.org/sferik/rails_admin/builds/12264873

It's strange since it's only broken in JRuby and it seems to be intermittent on my machine - sometimes it fails and sometimes it works. It fails consistently on Travis, though.

I tried to bisect to find a specific commit that broke things but I couldn't find a point after any of the changes committed October 8 (i.e., 30fda2a through 4e2ef25). Some of those bugs looked more functional, though, and I think were fixed in later commits but it's a little hard to tell.

At this point it's hard to move forward, though, unless we drop support for JRuby (which I don't think we want to do), revert to 975efeb, or figure out what's wrong and fix it proactively.

Found this in poltergeist: jonleighton/poltergeist#404
As is described there, after removing simplecov rake exit status problem disappears.

So can we just allow failure for travis JRuby builds and wait for poltergeist to fix it?

I tried disabling simplecov in jruby builds and the rake task still fails so I think the poltergeist guys might be headed in the right direction but aren't there yet. We've had a broken build for two weeks now and it makes it hard to make changes with any confidence. I'd rather revert 7bf4a77 and try again when/if poltergeist starts working on JRuby.

Thank you for suggestion, but I decided not to stop using poltergeist because JS-enabled testing capability is long-awaited feature and don't want to lose it.
I'll keep this issue opened until poltergeist's fix is released as gem.

OK, the build looks good so I changed this issue's title to better reflect where we are now. Let's all keep it green!
