[PATH] Use extended version of file_name in require_or_load

Reported by Ravil Bayramgalin | January 29th, 2011 @ 05:44 PM

Currently require_or_load uses extended version of filename to check wether file was loaded or not, but when it loads the file it uses just a filename instead of extended version.

So the same file gets loaded several times.

And even more if you use ruby 1.9, project directory isn't prepended to $LOAD_PATH, so require_or_load fails to load simple 'lib/some_file'.

This patch fixes it by using extended version of filename.

    Sorry, current commit wasn't working correctly, I've removed it. So the problem still stands.

    Simple way to illustrate, add following to application.rb:

    config.autoload_paths << 'lib'

    And try to reference module/class from lib using ruby 1.9 (but not in console since it's eagerly loads these files, it seems).
