I have an ActiveRecord class that has several has_many,belongs_to,
habtm, and the new has_many => :through  relationships.

Whenever I try a

find(:all, :conditions => "some conds", :include [:relationship])

it works fine, but if I have

find(:all, :conditions => "some conds", :include [:relationship,

it gets a sql error such as

Mysql::Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual
that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to
use near ...

I'll paste the actual output below, but what I've found is that there is
a stray pipe character ( | ) near the LEFT OUTER JOIN statements.  I
have no idea why its there, but if I remove it and paste the result into
the mysql command line, the query succeeds.  Does anyone know what is
going on here?  Is this a bug?  Thanks for the help.  Here's the whole
error. I know its really long, but just search for the | and you'll see
what I mean.  Thanks again.

If no one else has seen this, can anyone imagine how I may have done
this to myself?
