assert_recognizes with requirements => {:method => something}

I'm having trouble with my routing, and was wondering if anyone else
had seen something similar.

I've got these two routes:
map.login '/login', :controller => 'sessions', :action =>
'new', :requirements => { :method => :get }
map.connect '/login', :controller => 'sessions', :action =>
'create', :requirements => { :method => :post }

and I have these tests:
a. assert_recognizes({:controller => 'sessions', :action => 'new'},
{:path => '/login', :method => :get})

b. assert_recognizes({:controller => 'sessions', :action => 'create'},
{:path => '/login', :method => :post})

I get the failure messages:
a. The recognized options <{"action"=>"new", "method"=>:get,
"controller"=>"sessions"}> did not match <{"action"=>"new",
"controller"=>"sessions"}>, difference: <{"method"=>:get}>

b. The recognized options <{"action"=>"new", "method"=>:get,
"controller"=>"sessions"}> did not match <{"action"=>"create",
"controller"=>"sessions"}>, difference: <{"action"=>"create",

I have two problems:
1. In the API for AssertRouting, it shows these calls without
{ :method => xxx } in the first argument. Changing the first call to
assert_recognizes({:controller => 'sessions', :action =>
'new', :method => :get}, {:path => '/login', :method => :get})
works, but I feel like I shouldn't need to do that.

2. Even if I change the second call to
assert_recognizes({:controller => 'sessions', :action =>
'create', :method => :post}, {:path => '/login', :method => :post})
it still fails with the same error. It's as though Rails is ignoring
the requirements of the first route.

Thanks in advance for any help,

In case anyone is wondering, the key here is the difference
between :requirements and :conditions. The routes should actually
look like

a. map.login '/login', :controller => 'sessions', :action =>
'new', :conditions => { :method => :get }

b. map.connect '/login', :controller => 'sessions', :action =>
'create', :conditions => { :method => :post }

:conditions only works on :method, and :requirements only works on
everything else
