has_many :through Doesn't Use Conditions For Creating New Records

Reported by Matt Bauer | February 27th, 2009 @ 12:20 AM | in 2.x

has_many :through Doesn't Use Conditions For Creating New Records. Assuming the following ActiveRecord:

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :skimmers, :class_name => 'Reader', :conditions => { :skimmer => true }
  has_many :impatient_people, :through => :skimmers, :source => :person


When a new record is created with the following code:

my_post.impatient_people.create!(:first_name => 'bob')

Creates the proper models in the readers and people tables but the record in the readers table does not have the skimmer attribute set to true. The attached patch will interrogate the conditions options and if it's a hash, add it to the attribute hash when creating the join model.
