I'm glad you finally solved the problem (with the help of Daniel N).
I didn't mean to be condescending on the matter of reading the
mailing list. Authentication is a hard matter to deal with because
of Rails complications.
As for mocks - you might want to google Martin Fowlers article about
how "Mocks aren't stubs". Every mock that receives an unexpected
message (i.e. method call) will raise a MockExpectationError. This
is a sign that you should probably be stubbing those methods.
