test_should_delete_token_on_logout fails

Reported by Jeff Schwab | March 18th, 2009 @ 05:18 PM

One of the automatically generated functional test for an authenticated controller fails on Rails 2.3, Ruby 1.9.1. The error message looks like this:

1) Failure: test_should_delete_token_on_logout(SessionsControllerTest) [/Users/jeff/file/proj/guelph/src/test/functional/sessions_controller_test.rb:52]: expected but was <[]>.

The test looks like this:

def test_should_delete_token_on_logout

login_as :quentin
get :destroy
assert_equal @response.cookies["auth_token"], []


It passes if assert_equal is replaced with assert_nil:

assert_nil @response.cookies["auth_token"]

I have no idea whether this is the right thing to do. The relevant "cookies" method appears to be the one in ActionController::Cookies#cookies, but there appear to be several layers of indirection beyond that.
