Need to map route so devise works in functional tests #1895

I'm using ruby 1.9.3 and rails 3.2.3 and everytime I want to use devise, I need to add this to my setup method:

@request.env["devise.mapping"] = Devise.mappings[:user]

any reason why this is happening?

It is required so Devise knows which scope is accessing the app, since
functional tests skip the router. Please remember to use the mailing list
for questions.

Well this is mentionned nowhere in the documentation, I had to browse the web for 3 hours to finally figure out I had to do this.... The way it is explained in the doc mislead me to think that adding

class ActionController::TestCase
  include Devise::TestHelpers

Was the only needed step. This is why I opened this issue, since I believe it should be mentionned in the README
