Code works in console but fails test?

So I have message model and each user has many messages. When I run
user.messages in the console it returns correctly, however in the test
it returns and empty collection? Any thoughts. All the sql is being
generate correctly, I checked the log. Here’s a pastie with the code
in question.

Hi, please post the exact statement that you’re typing in the console.

u = User.find :first

the output is three

tests are run against the test database, so it will be empty unless
you create some messages for your user in fixtures or otherwise.
