Lazy Loading and Included Modules

Reported by gustin (at entryway) | March 18th, 2009 @ 05:47 PM | in 3.x

Including modules in ApplicationController results in this error when an included method is called:

ActionView::TemplateError (A copy of Visiting has been removed from 
the module tree but is still active!)

Visiting is the name of the Module and is simply included like:

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  include AuthenticatedSystem
  include ExceptionNotifiable
  include RoleRequirementSystem
  include SslRequirement
  include Visiting

The rails-dev-boost project, edge branch seems to work fine:

We are loading modules from a unique directory /app/lib, that may be part of the issue.

  config.load_paths += %W(#{Rails.root}/app/lib)

    This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not been commented on for at least three months.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
