User.find() unavailable for module when accessed through an test

Hi,

The methods I´ve put in GenericMessageFunctions are available and
working within the Rails app, but I can´t access them from my tests.
Why isn´t User.find() available from the GenericMessageFunctions
module when it´s accessed trough a test? Should I include some library
to get it working?

$ ruby test/unit/tweet_test.rb

It's not that it's not available but it's blowing up because you're
passing the class User to delegate_to when presumably you meant to
pass the instance you created a few lines previously
