named routes in functional tests (edge)

Hi --

I'm having trouble calling named routes in functional tests. Given
this in routes.rb

   map_resources :tags

and this in my tags functional tests:

   def test_route
     tags_url # just calling it
   end

I get this:

   1) Error:
test_route(TagsControllerTest):
NoMethodError: You have a nil object when you didn't expect it!
The error occurred while evaluating nil.rewrite
     /home/dblack/hacking/scratchpad-rest/config/../vendor/rails/actionpack/lib/action_controller/base.rb:519:in
`url_for'
     (eval):19:in `tags_url'
     /home/dblack/hacking/scratchpad-rest/config/../vendor/rails/actionpack/lib/action_controller/test_process.rb:438:in
`method_missing'
     tags_controller_test.rb:15:in `test_route'

519 in base.rb is:

  def url_for(options = {}, *parameters_for_method_reference)
    case options
      # some when clauses...
      when Hash
        @url.rewrite(rewrite_options(options)) # 519
    end
  end

The same thing happens if I do this in the application console.

Any suggestions/ideas?
