[rspec-users] uh... fixtures?

I'm aware this is quite the FAQ. I have probably asked it myself, but I just
can't Google up anything but others asking it.
I grabbed the source to Beast, to use as a Rails project uninfluenced by me, or
RSpec. Then I installed the CURRENT version of RSpec and rspec_on_rails, and set
up a model spec on Post.
Here's the spec_helper.rb lines:
config.use_transactional_fixtures = true
config.use_instantiated_fixtures = false
config.fixture_path = RAILS_ROOT + '/test/fixtures/'
# borrow existing ones ^
config.global_fixtures = :posts, :topics, :users
And here's a Beast test translated into a spec:
describe Post do
fixtures :forums, :moderatorships, :monitorships, :posts, :topics, :users
it 'should require body for post' do
@post = topics(:pdi).posts.build
And the whiny nil error message hits topics(:pid).
