grouped_options_for_select returning incorrect option groups

Reported by Throlkim | December 14th, 2010 @ 01:39 PM

Using the demo code from the API documentation:

grouped_options = {
    'North America' => [['United States','US'], 'Canada'],
    'Europe' => ['Denmark','Germany','France']


<optgroup label="Europe"><option value="Denmark">Denmark</option></optgroup>
<option value="Germany">Germany</option>
<option value="France">France</option>
<optgroup label="North America">
<option value="US">United States</option>
<option value="Canada">Canada</option>

The same happens when using nested arrays, as demonstrated by this pastie:

    Still returning incorrect data in the view.

    Tested in both Rails 3.0.1 and 3.0.3.
