fields_for not working correctly outside erb

Reported by Indrek Juhkam | January 15th, 2011 @ 11:06 PM

This code, when in a helper, only outputs existing records hidden id fields.

def answer_fields(f)
  f.fields_for :answers {|builder| builder.text_field :title}
It works fine directly inside an .erb file. Also, it works perfectly for unsaved records.

When I commented out this line, then it worked for existing records too. Didn't get any id-s of course.
It seems that @template.concat is overwriting the block content.
