Hi, I'm relatively new to ruby and rails. I would like to have a sidebar component call one of several other constituent components. I've run into some problems, and so I've pruned things back to a relatively simple case. I have a sidebar component. Renders great. In it's layout, I call render_component for another component I would like in the sidebar. This seems to work. Right now, I end up with an error message in my sidebar saying that the template is missing. It shows a path to where it expected to find the template. I agree...that's where I expected to put my template. Here's the problem: When I put my template in (regardless of content: empty file, only HTML, etc) and reload I get a bus error and a core dump. I'm using WEBrick, Rail 1.0.0, ruby 1.8.4 on FreeBSD 5.4. Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong? Thanks, Brad -- Bradley M.

So as I outlined earlier, doing a render_component() call within a component layout seems to cause WEBrick to core dump for me. I did some more playing and I found out that instead of doing this: application.html - render sidebar component - render tool1 component - render tool2 component if I do this: application.html - render tool1 component - render tool2 component - render sidebar component - render tool1 component - render tool2 component The page seems to render as I would expect. No core dump. Now if I revert to the original one, I don't get a core dump (as long as it's within the same WEBrick process). So, this appears to be some file loading issue, doesn't it? How can I go about having the sidebar component ensure that the tool1 and tool2 components are loaded? I tried doing require's, but that didn't seem to work. Any suggestions?
