Topic: Nifty_config breaking Cucumber?

Given the following gems installed: (and a supporting cast)
cucumber (0.8.0)
cucumber-rails (0.3.2)
nifty-generators (0.4.0)
rails (2.3.8)

When I try to mix nifty_config with cucumber:
$ rails foo
$ cd foo
$ script/generate cucumber
... blah blah blah cucumber sets up just fine...

Cucumber by itself works just fine

chitselb@samosa ~/dev/foo $ cucumber
Using the default profile...

0 scenarios
0 steps
0m0.000s

But when I generate a nifty_config it gets ugly for cucumber...

$ script/generate nifty_config bar

Then I should NOT see this:

chitselb@samosa ~/dev/foo $ cucumber
Using the default profile...
undefined method `symbolize_keys' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.3.8/lib/active_support/whiny_nil.rb:52:in `method_missing'
/mnt/data/chitselb/Documents/dev/foo/config/initializers/load_bar_config.rb:2
... blah blah blah more stack trace

$ cat config/initializers/load_bar_config.rb
