The session that RailsStory (in 'spec/story') and in cucumber exposes
is an ActionController::Integration::Session, not the Hash you get
from ActionController::Base.session (as is the case in
ControllerExampleGroup or rails functional tests). So you're not
setting mock expectations on the object you think you are.

I haven't worked with open ID, nor do I know what approach your app
uses to communicate with open ID, but if you wrap that access in a
method, then you can just override that method in your steps file (or
any other .rb file as long as you require it) and have it set up state
the way you want it.

Make sense?
