[rspec-users] rspec_on_rails: controller method not getting called

I figured it out.  

By doing this session sanity check in the spec (as recommended by
dchelimsky):
    sess = session
    get 'index'
    sess.should equal(session)

I was able to see that a 'Please log in' redirect was preventing index from
getting called.
