Support for infinity from database in validates_numericality_of

Reported by Esben Mose Hansen | June 8th, 2009 @ 08:49 AM | in 3.x

After this patch was accepted

infinity was partly supported by validates_numericality_of. However, if the infinity (or nan for that matter) stems from the database, the validation would fail. That leads to the rather interesting cases where the model is successfully saved, but a reloading and saving again fails because of validates_numericality_of. I have create a patch that solves the issue. (attached).

Note that support for infinity in the database is broken, at least for postgresql; I will create an issue an attach a patch for this later.
