Unit testing user authentication is still a mess since the class
does way too much to be well testable.
The patch refactors a number of tests that came in with the session
framework test to not rely on mocked $subject anymore, but it also
marks a couple of tests to be skipped for now - those should be
transferred to functional tests which will probably end up to be
much easier to understand and maintainable.
