Full error messages on nested attributes do not work with I18n

Reported by Anton Bangratz | September 20th, 2010 @ 08:54 AM

Having the I18n model and attribute options set, the 'full_messages' method constructs the nested attribute names from calling 'humanize' on a string that is derived from replacing '.' by '_' in the attribute name, instead of rendering the name of the model and attribute by using model_name.human respectively human_attribute_name.

My patch splits the 'model.attribute' string in two, constantizing the 'model' string and checks if model_name can be called on the resulting class, then calling model_name.human and human_attribute_name(attribute_name) to construct the name to display.

Test are included. Patch applies to 3.1.0.beta and 3.0.0.
