Validates_acceptance_of is not respecting database field

Reported by Si | April 22nd, 2010 @ 10:27 PM | in 3.0.2

In AcceptanceValidator#setup (/lib/active_model/validations/acceptance.rb), the class instance methods are inspected, to see if a writer method exists for each validated attribute. If not, an accessor for that attribute is created:

new_attributes = attributes.reject { |name|"#{name}=") }                                                  
klass.send(:attr_accessor, *new_attributes)

However, klass.instance_methods does not pick up on my database backed fields. This leads to creating an overridden method that will not actually write the underlying attribute.
