Hi, just upgraded an app from Rails 2.1.0 to 2.2.2 and finding my routes
stopped working

URL which doesn't match is:

Route is:
map.connect 'blog/:controller/:action/:id', :requirements =>
{:controller => /(auth|asdf)/}

In fact, neither does this match:
map.connect 'blog/:controller/:action/:id', :requirements =>
{:controller => /(auth)/}

But this does:
map.connect 'blog/:controller/:action/:id', :requirements =>
{:controller => /auth/}

So the problem seems to be that "(  )" syntax is breaking the regexp
parsing.  Curiously though the regexp *does* work for link generation,
it's only route recognition which breaks

Can anyone give me a quick workaround for this, quite a lot or routes to
alter otherwise...
