Possible AR 3.1.0beta bug

Reported by bug.odesk (at gmail) | December 7th, 2010 @ 08:52 AM

Not completely sure if it rails bug or not, but still let me explain. I'm trying to use I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord with rails 3.1.0beta. My initializer:

I18n.backend =

I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord.send(:include, I18n::Backend::Memoize)
I18n::Backend::Simple.send(:include, I18n::Backend::Memoize)
I18n::Backend::Simple.send(:include, I18n::Backend::Pluralization)
I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord.send(:include, I18n::Backend::Flatten)

I18n.backend =, I18n.backend)

Everything works perfect, except one thing. AR backend using serialized attributes (value and interpolations) in I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord::Translation model. And weird thing - every models have serialized_attributes = {"value"=>Object, "interpolations"=>Array}. I can't figure out why it's set for every model. This breaks normal saving for those attributes in my models. On AR 3.0.3 everything ok.

Can you please check it?

    I created test app:

    just clone it, run migrations and check localhost:3000

    P.S. even without initializer (only with i18n-active_record gem in Gemfile) it shows same serialized attributes.

    Seems like AR bug. Try running i18n-activerecord using 3.1.0 tests.

    seems like i can't start tests. it fails on 1.9.2 because on rubytree gem and fails on 1.8.7 because of some error in rubyinline. will continue trying, but...

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
