-n option broken for tests in rails 2.3.9

Reported by Emmanuel Turlay | December 9th, 2010 @ 02:59 PM

The -n option in

ruby my_tests.rb -n test_foo
does not work anymore in rail 2.3.9 with ruby 1.9.2. The problem is that at line 151 of file
n is a string and t.method_name is a symbol. Hence, n == t.method_name returns false.
To solve this, one needs to change line 59 or file
suite << new(test)
suite << new(test.to_s)
This is more consistent with line 64 which instantiate the default test case with the string "default_test" and not the symbol :default_test.

Is this something specific to my configuration or is anyone else reproducing this?
