Routing with a blank path_prefix causes a bad url to generate

Reported by Andrew Bloom | March 3rd, 2009 @ 10:22 PM | in 2.x

edit Long complex description has been moved to my blog: http://www.somethingunimportant.... I have now updated this ticket to walk you through a simple example to reproduce this bug.

> rails bug

> cd bug

Edit routes.rb to include:

  map.connect "/applicants/:id", :controller => "applicants", :action => "show", :path_prefix => ""

> rake routes

(in /Users/abloom/Sites/bug)

//applicants/:id {:controller=>"applicants", :action=>"show"}

Edit routes.rb to include:

  map.connect "/applicants/:id", :controller => "applicants", :action => "show", :path_prefix => nil

> rake routes

(in /Users/abloom/Sites/bug)

/applicants/:id {:controller=>"applicants", :action=>"show"}

Notice how with the path_prefix set to an empty string the route builder generates an extra slash, but with it set to nil the path looks normal.
