Topic: destroy_all in teardown doesn't really flush my table

I have a test (test unit ) using machinist

def setup
def teardown
  puts Agent.count # -> 0

test "someting" do
  # do nothing

The result for Agent.count in teardown is 0 (in test.log I see "DELETE FROM AGENTS"
But a native statement "select count(*) from agents" returns 1.

The problem is that the table is still populated after the test. The next test fails because of duplicate values.

I know, normally the complete DB should be dropped and new created, but the ibm_driver seems not to support that.
So I decided to skip that task in databases.rake and clean my tables after each test.

Since I am new to rails I am not sure, if this is test unit, a db (ibm db2 ) or even a machinist related

gem 'rails', '3.0.0'
gem 'machinist', '>= 2.0.0.beta2'
ruby 1.9.2
gem 'ibm_db'

thanks in advance or any hint
