It does, however, as I mentioned in the RSpec-dev mailing list post,
trying to recreate it just end prematurely, doesn't complete.

Ignoring for a second that ZenTest/autospec changes the first two
lines of the autotest rubygem stub, check the following example:

#ruby
ruby 1.8.6 (2010-02-04 patchlevel 398) [i386-mingw32]

#gem list:

win32console (1.3.0.beta2, 1.3.0.beta1)
rspec (1.3.0)
ZenTest (4.2.1)

# ~/.autotest
STDOUT.puts "OUT: THIS IS ~/.autotest file"
STDERR.puts "ERR: THIS IS ~/.autotest file"
require 'win32console'
puts "$stdout.redirected? #{$stdout.redirected?}"
puts "$stderr.redirected? #{$stderr.redirected?}"

# rake-compiler/.autotest
STDOUT.puts "OUT: THIS IS rake-compiler/.autotest file"
STDERR.puts "ERR: THIS IS rake-compiler/.autotest file"
require 'win32console'
puts "$stdout.redirected? #{$stdout.redirected?}"
puts "$stderr.redirected? #{$stderr.redirected?}"

Running autospec in my folder, output this:

C:\Users\Luis\Projects\oss\rake-compiler>autospec
(Not running features.  To run features in autotest, set
AUTOFEATURE=3Dtrue.)
loading autotest/rspec
OUT: THIS IS ~/.autotest file
ERR: THIS IS ~/.autotest file
$stdout.redirected? false
$stderr.redirected? false
OUT: THIS IS rake-compiler/.autotest file
ERR: THIS IS rake-compiler/.autotest file
$stdout.redirected? false
$stderr.redirected? false
C:\Users\Luis\Tools\Ruby\ruby-1.8.6-p398-i386-mingw32\bin\ruby C:/
Users/Luis/.gem/ruby/x86-mingw32/1.8/gems/rspec-1.3.0/bin/spec --

javaextensiontask_spec.rb C:/Users/Luis/Projects/oss/rake-compiler/
spec/lib/rake/extensiontask_spec.rb -O spec/spec.opts

And from there beautiful colors (well, not beautiful, but seems it
works).

The following version also works:
ruby 1.8.7 (2010-01-10 patchlevel 249) [i386-mingw32]

But NOT 1.9.1:

C:\Users\Luis\Projects\oss\rake-compiler>autospec
loading autotest/rspec
OUT: THIS IS ~/.autotest file
ERR: THIS IS ~/.autotest file
$stdout.redirected? false
$stderr.redirected? false

Rake::ExtensionTask

(e.g. `jruby -S rake compile:java`)

=3D=3D=3D=3D

Stops there, all without colors.

Now, running rake spec or spec -c spec display all colors too, so is
something around autospec/autotest and Ruby 1.9

=3D=3D=3D=3D

Hope I explained better this time since seems nobody answered on RSpec-
dev maybe my english wasn't good enough.
