[Patch] insert_fixtures casts to string for timestamp_columns

Reported by kdgundermann | June 30th, 2010 @ 02:17 PM

insert_fixtures casts to string for timestamp_columns:

def insert_fixtures
    now = ActiveRecord::Base.default_timezone == :utc ? :
    now = now.to_s(:db)

so, when saving the data to the database, these columns won't get quoted in the adapter by quoted_date.
So all tests running against a MS SQL Server database with non US local locale (e.g German) will fail due to the wrong datetime format.

Edited by Rohit Arondekar for formating.

    Some tests are still failing because the fixtures data uses #to_s(:db)
    in pirates.yml

      catchphrase: "Avast!"
      parrot: louis
      created_on: <%= 2.weeks.ago.to_s(:db) %>
      updated_on: <%= 2.weeks.ago.to_s(:db) %>
