[PATCH] Parsing an xml file with multiple records and extra attributes (besides type) fails

Reported by Sidu Ponnappa | September 16th, 2009 @ 03:33 PM

This issue occurs when a collection is serialised to xml, and has attributes other than type='array' on the root node (for example is you choose to suppy page/per-page information for pagination as root attributes). This completely breaks ActiveResource when dealing with paginated collections.

I've taken the patch against rails/activesupport. I've changed Hash#typecast_xml_value to ignore extra attributes when 'type' is present. The sample data to reproduce the issue is included as part of the specs.
