ActiveResource does not serialize XML correctly

Reported by VirtualFunction | May 4th, 2010 @ 07:53 AM | in 3.0.2

Assuming I have

class RemoteArticle < ActiveResource::Base
  self.element_name = 'article'

now results in:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

the node tag name should really be article, not remote-article.

I'm hacking my way round this by making the encode method call "to_xml :root => self.class.element_name" as I see methods like update/create call encode rather than to_xml/to_json however this is not a real fix.

I'm using Rails 3.0 trunk/master from about 2 hours ago. I don't seem to recall this being an issue in beta 1 or 2.
