I have this same problem...

calling render_component :controller=>x, :action=>y with :layout =>
false or
:layout => nil still renders the layout for that controller.

Is there any way to make it not render the layout ?

	Here is how I get around this issue:

    def x
        if params[:no_layout]
	  do stuff....
	  render :layout => false
          do stuff ....
          render :layout => "x_tmpl"

And then you can call the render_component like this:

  render_component( :controller=>x, :action=>y, :params =>
{:no_layout => true})
