active_record_context prevents object.reload from database

Reported by Amir Helzer | September 27th, 2007 @ 08:01 AM

When active_record_context is called in an around filter, object calls to .reload() don't actually go to the database. The objects get loaded from memory.

As a result, if optimistic locking is used, the transaction will keep failing indefinitely.

What I do is:

while !ok {

ok = object.save

if !ok


... reapply my changes to the objects ...



When active_record_context, this just fails forever as the stale object is never really refreshed from the database.

I've tried patching this, but it seems that my Ruby/Rails skills are not yet up to it...
