Fixtures misbehaving


#1

http://manuals.rubyonrails.com/read/chapter/26#page67

Using Ubuntu 5.10, Ruby 1.8, current Rails

Any ideas?

class UserTest < Test::Unit::TestCase

fixtures :users

def test_fixtures
assert_not_nil @users
end

The defaults for unit testing changed. For performance reasons, all
