Providing wrong password for development database causes skipping of unit tests

Reported by ronin-35527 (at lighthouseapp) | November 21st, 2008 @ 09:38 AM | in 2.x

If you provide a wrong password for your development database in database.yml rake will skip the unit tests and jump straight to functional tests when running 'rake test' without further notice. I guess the issue appears because rake is unable to copy the structure of the development database into the testing database. This is a problem because rake might end up running tests that is written for a newer version of the database - with an old version of it.

To recreate the issue just try typing something like "sifsidofgisno" in database.yml under development, and then run 'rake test'. No error messages, rake just skips the unit tests.
