Nil output buffer in capture helper

Reported by rap-kasta | February 21st, 2010 @ 04:58 PM

I found this bug while tried to make own copy of edge rails guides, so..

Problem is:

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/actionpack-3.0.0.beta/lib/action_view/helpers/capture_helper.rb:147:in with_output_buffer': undefined methodencoding' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)

If see on the code:
buf.force_encoding(output_buffer.encoding) if buf.respond_to?(:force_encoding)

but output_buffer is nil!
For me, I add a dirty hack that did the work:

class NilClass

def encoding


I think, output_buffer must be defined before work with it...
