class Message < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :recipient, :class_name => User.name

  validates_presence_of :title, :text, :recipient
end
--
require 'spec_helper'

class User
end

describe Message do
  before(:each) do
    @message = Message.new(
      :title => "foo",
      :text => "bar",
      :recipient => mock_model(User)
    )
  end
...
--
If I uncomment the :class_name option on the belongs_to relation of
Message:

    Failure/Error: @message = Message.new(
    uninitialized constant Message::Recipient

Hmm??
