This produces a Table object, not a resultset, see the 
DBIx::Class::ResultSet docs:

        IMPORTANT: If called on an object, proxies to new_result instead so

          my $cd = $schema->resultset('CD')->new({ title => 'Spoon' });

        will return a CD object, not a ResultSet.

If all you are doing is creating new rows, and throwing away the objects, 
then you could just use populate() instead:

$schema->populate('Table', [
                   [ 'user' ],          # list of field names
                   ['username1'],       # values for the fields
                   ['username2'],       # values for another row

No, you could also just empty the PK cols and unset in_storage(), but 
populate is the correct way to do this.
