New "scoped" implementation since v2.3.9 breaks chained scopes with custom methods

Reported by Logan Bowers | November 3rd, 2010 @ 11:34 PM

Using git-bisect, I tracked down an issued to commit bfbdeea, "Use bind instead of instance_exec cause it may be causing memory leaks. Also, provide a simpler and sane implementation for scoped.". This commit changes how scoped works such that it no longer propagates custom methods on scopes.

This is an example of the broken case:

  class MyModel < ActiveRecord::Base
    has_many :widgets do
      def limited_to(x)
        scoped(:conditions => ...)

      def fnord
        "a fnord"

  class Widget < ActiveRecord::Base

  MyModel.find(:first).widgets.limited_to(true).fnord # <- EXPLODES undefined method 'fnord' for #<Class:...>

I'm not sure exactly how the scoping functionality changed with this commit, but it broke this case.
