models' respond_to? does not honor private

Reported by Gaius Centus Novus | September 2nd, 2008 @ 11:14 PM | in 2.x

I want to make an attribute truly private, so I tried this:

class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
  # attribute bar
  def bar
    read_attribute :bar
  def bar=(value)
    write_attribute :bar, value

but returns true, where a normal (non-active-record) instance would return false for private methods.

This patch adds a check in respond_to? to honor private methods that shadow attributes.
