Overriding setup in Rail's test_helper - impossible?

Is there a way that will just work for adding common setup code to test_helper? None of the below work:

[ruby] # this breaks fixtures in the acts_as_authenticated account_controller_test (but nowhere else, for some reason)… def setup end [/ruby]

[ruby] # this breaks things all over the place def setup super end [/ruby]

[ruby] # this is the way I think it should work, but it breaks down in functional tests def setup_with_logging setup_without_logging end alias_method_chain :setup, :logging [/ruby]

There is way too much magic happening in the rails test setup, particularly in fixtures.rb. This should not be that difficult.
