ActiveRecord: nested "include" hints fail if record classes are in modules

Reported by Rich Bradley | May 27th, 2008 @ 12:17 PM

ActiveRecord 2.0.2 can't load records whose classes are in modules when using nested "include"s.


@edition = Edition.find_by_id(edition_id, {:include => {:published_item => :user}})

gives an error:


`load_missing_constant': uninitialized constant PublishedItem (NameError)

This appears to be because "constantize" is called on the string "PublishedItem", which isn't a constant, although "YuduLibrary::Model::PublishedItem" is.

I've attached a monkey patch which I'm currently using to work around the problem.

I would submit a proper patch to fix the issue, but I can't get the ActiveRecord unit tests to run on my machine (win32).
