gotcha with activerecord computed boolean attributes

Reported by Kieran | September 19th, 2008 @ 03:25 PM | in 3.x

If you use find_by_sql and include a calculated boolean column e.g. p = Person.find_by_sql('select *,age < 25 as young_person from people') then do p[0].young_person? it will always return true (I'm 90% sure this behaviour has changed) the issue lies with the way query_attribute works now - Perhaps it should include a test for 't' and 'f' as well?

Many thanks
