[rspec-users] Authenticating before tests

I'm using Goldberg, an engine that provides roles based access
control for my app. I need to login before I can do controller tests,
but I can't find any examples of people doing this.
Could someone point me in the right direction?
I thought the simplest way would be to either call the login action
from my other tests before(:all), but I can't seem to find how to
call another controller from within the spec for a different
controller. (Results in @controller is nil).
I've also tried setting session[:user] in before(:all), but session
is nil at that point!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
