Simple Ruby on Rails app - styles are not applying

I have a problem with the front end portion of this project. There is some weirdness with the compilation of the files.

If I write a CSS rule that looks like this in statuses.css.scss:

.statuses { margin-bottom: 30px; }

In the compiled version it adds an extra weird character to the selector, so it looks like this: .statuses¶ {...}

Also, the compilation doesn't always happen. The problem can be fixed when I don't leave a blank space between the selector and the curly braces. I would like to try to identify the problem though, any ideas?
