supertest test express middleware

found the following hint on how to test middleware in express:

https://github.com/visionmedia/express/blob/master/test/req.xhr.js
I was wondering why my tests were always passing. Until I noticed that when i copied the test from express they behaved the same. I tried screwing them up but they keep passing:
https://github.com/visionmedia/express/blob/master/test/req.xhr.js

What am I missing here?

it('should return true when X-Requested-With is xmlhttprequest', function(done){
var app = express();
app.use(function(req, res){
req.xhr.should.be.false; //set to false, to fail the test but it still passes
res.end();
});
request(app)
.get('/')
.set('X-Requested-With', 'xmlhttprequest')
.end(function(res){
done();
})
})
