Don't try to fix it. If a core spec is defined to expect things in a default 
order but an extension changes the default, then those added specs will fail. 
The only way around this would be to undefine the original specs, but I'm not 
sure of a way to do that.

The original post, however, listed this as the problem:

"Mysql::Error: Unknown column 'position' in 'order clause':"

Which means that the column doesn't exist. So it sounds to me like Anna is 
merely seeing the result of the altered behavior with a position column, but 
Arlen doesn't even have the position column.

I haven't had a chance to really look into this, but I have seen the problem 
before and can't recall how it was fixed for me (other than running "rake 
RAILS_ENV=test db:migrate:extensions")
