Hi there, I've been working on a solution to try and fix a problem I am getting with the Interlock plugin. However, my quick solution was to clone my ActiveRecord object and store the clone. I now realise that cloning ActiveRecord objects merely extracts the attributes and creates a new object with the same attributes. What I want is to clone the whole object, in this case assocations aren't necessary just the object with the correct id. Is there any reason why this would be bad? I guess cloning the object is generally used to duplicate records but here I want to take the object and cache it without affecting the original object. RobL

Try your_active_record_instance.dup instead of .clone.
