Bundled rack-1.0 doesn't loaded first in Rails 2.3.2

Reported by Peter Kieltyka | March 16th, 2009 @ 05:07 PM | in 2.x

The Rails 2.3.2 release contains a bug that was later resolved in the next commit:

Due to a load path bug, if a version of Rack is installed as a gem, it will be be used instead of the bundled 1.0 version that comes with Rails 2.3.2. In my case I have rack-0.9.1 installed as a gem and when submitting a form the parameters look like:

{ "post[body]" => "data" }

If I remove rack-0.9.1 or use commit 39ff550fa88da9a22d8c21ca872f5e4d0d83f8d4 which loads the bundled Rack-1.0 first, the same post will return the params hash:

{ "post" => { "body" => "data" } }

In the common case where a controller has a create action with the code @post =[:post]), in the current case of Rails 2.3.2, params[:post] will return nil and break the application.
