An instance of User will itself call the .update_attribute. The class won't call it.
However, I can't think of a reason not to just write the record, reload it, and
check the fields. And a _functional_ test should not care how the record got
written (update_attribute, save, or whatever). A unit test might care, but
functional tests need a little more float...
