I've replaced the mock model with a real AR object, but the spec is
still failing:
==== Changed spec:
require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../spec_helper'

describe "/pos_orderlines/create.rjs" do

  before(:each) do
    @orderlines = [stub('orderlines', :to_param => "2", :item =>
stub('item', :description => 'an item', :price => 10))]
    @order = stub('order', :id => 1, :pos_orderlines => @orderlines,
:total_price => 10, :payments => stub('payments', :empty? => true))

    @the_order = PosOrder.create!
    assigns[:order] = @the_order

  it "should replace orderlines div" do
    render "/pos_orderlines/create.rjs"
    assert_rjs :replace_html, :orderlines, :partial =>
'pos_orders/orderlines', :locals => { :order => @the_order }


==== failes with:
Test::Unit::AssertionFailedError in '/pos_orderlines/create.rjs should
replace orderlines div'
No replace_html call found on div: 'orderlines' and content:
{partial: "pos_orders/orderlines", locals: {order: {items: [],
payments: [], errors: [], attributes: {id: 65, state: "open",
created_at: {}}, new_record_before_save: true, new_record: false,
pos_orderlines: []}}}
in response:
Element.update("orderlines", "<table
class=\"total\">Total</td>\n\t\t<td id=\"total-price\"
<nil> is not true.

Any ideas?
