default_scope is having a side affecct on create

Reported by johnf | September 16th, 2009 @ 03:59 PM | in 3.0.2

If I have the following

class Foo
  default_scope :conditions => {:bar => 1}

If I try to create a new object

>> => 5)
=> #<Foo id: nil, name: nil, bar: 1, created_at: nil, updated_at: nil>

The object now has bar set to one when I've explicitly asked for it to be set to 5.

It makes sense to set the default if I don't pass it in but not otherwise

At a rough guess in ActiveRecord::Base initialize

2438         self.attributes = attributes unless attributes.nil?
2439         self.class.send(:scope, :create).each { |att,value| self.send("#{att}=", value) } if self.class.send(:scoped?, :create)

should be swapped around
