Rspec, HAML with view testing

Hi all,

Has anyone experienced the following problem testing rspec against
haml views

Attempting to run a view spec (partial)

app/view/users/_foo.html.haml

it "should render it" do
  render :partial => "users/foo", :locals => template_locals
end

The following error is returned:
1)
ActionView::MissingTemplate in 'shared/_jar_layout should render it'
Missing templatet users/_foo.html.erb in view path ....
/usr/lib64/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-2.1.0/lib/action_view/
template.rb:85:in `raise_missing_template_exception'

I have tried stubbing the template via
@template.stub!(:find_template_extension_for).and_return("haml") #
same error returned

Any ideas on having the template load the correct view?

Thanks in advance,
