#5888 ✓stale

Arel adds needless conditions in after_initialize callback.

Reported by Shouichi KAMIYA | October 29th, 2010 @ 07:03 PM

It's kind of hard for me to explain so here's the example.

class Account < AR:Base
  has_many :servers
class Server < AR:Base
  belongs_to :account

  after_initialize :set_hostname

  def set_hostname
    # I want to assign hostname for new record.
    puts Server.scoped.to_sql if new_record?

Here's the behavior of arel-1.0.1.

SELECT "servers".* FROM "servers"
 => #<Server>

SELECT "servers".* FROM "servers" WHERE ("servers".account_id = 1)
 => #<Server>

Arel adds account_id = 1 condition (which is needless). This occurs only in after_initialize callback.
