Using Rails 1.1.2 and ruby 1.8.4 I'm having a weird issue with the flash when using render_component for an action inside different controller than the one from which you render. I'm passing an object via flash across a couple of actions (new and create) behind the scenes using flash.keep(:object). It works fine if the component I'm rendering is in the same controller from which it is being called, but if I try to render a component from a different controller, the flash is somehow getting cleared (despite flash.keep being used in both rendered actions). I know there was a bug with render_component and flash back before 1.0, but it looks as though that has been fixed. Anyone else run into this?

Agh... nevermind. Found the issue. Silly mistake. Exceptions for things that go wrong with render_component can be a bit misleading.
