Hi David,
Yes, that was actually the problem, I replied Fred's email and somehow
it got posted to a new separated thread, I think because I edited the
subject to mark it as solved.
I'm copying my reply here so this thread is complete.

It didn't, but if it were, I would have solved it way earlier.
Thanks a lot for pointing this out!!!

Somehow, the .bundle/config file contained:
BUNDLE_WITHOUT: test development

Maybe the production branch did this and as this is git-ignored I
never noticed the change.

So I just removed this file and everything works as expected.

Thanks a lot, guys!
