Thanks - that helps a great deal.

Thanks, that's interesting, I didn't know about that option... Are there
any advantages of using this approach over #stub_model?

I agree, but in this case the controller really only does CRUD, and it
couldn't really be any skinnier or it might die! Also, I don't think
that it is the main source of the problem here, rather the fact that I
am using integrate_views which means I have to have a reasonably full
mock of any models wherever I have a form for that model.
