Greetings, Does anybody have a workaround/solution for Factory Girl's insistence on creating a new record for each association it creates? As far as I can tell, this makes using Factory Girl unusable when you have uniqueness validations on the model referenced by the FK when testing interrelated has_many/belongs_to associations. What am I missing here? Google shows many people with same issue without a clear resolution. I may just need some sleep. :-) Thanks TMA

I have exactly the same problem... but no solution. Would also greatly appreciate suggestions as to a workaround.
