[rspec-users] Spec'ing controller macros

(This is my first post after months of appreciative lurking...)

I'm trying to spec the following conditional controller macro:

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  # turn off session management for robots
  session :off, :if => lambda {|req| req.user_agent =~ /(Google|Slurp)/i }
  # ... 

My current attempt seems to be quite unsuccessful: 
1) when I include the controller.should_receive(:session) statement, the
index action no longer seems to be actually called (ie a breakpoint placed
in the index method is not triggered)
2) I receive the following error:
Spec::Mocks::MockExpectationError in 'ApplicationController should turn off
session management for requests made by robot user agent'
Mock 'FooController' expected :session with (:off) but received it with (no

Any suggestions?

Thanks much,

describe ApplicationController do 
  class FooController < ApplicationController 
    def index; render :text => "foo"; end 
  controller_name :foo 

  it "should turn off session management for requests made by robot user
agent" do 
    request.stub!(:user_agent).and_return("Google Robot")
    get :index
