validates_associated throws 'can't modify frozen object' error

Reported by Jamie | September 17th, 2010 @ 05:35 AM

Steps to reproduce:
Create a value object using composed_of like in the Rails documentation. Use the :converter option to recreate the value object from the params hash when attributes= is called on the parent. Add validations to the value object. * Run those validations by using validates_associated in the entity where you have composed_of.

What happens:
* A 'can't modify frozen object' error is thrown.

Why it happens:
* Not really sure, but I tracked it as far as the valid? method in ActiveRecord::Validations. It appears to break in the "ensure" part of the that method. This was added in commit 82485068f8b64a49cbb6. When I overrode valid? in my value object, using the logic as it was before that commit, validates_associated started working as expected.
