ActiveRecord::Rollback Config Help

I’m struggling with why ActiveRecord isn’t rolling back my
transactions. I’ve ran the same code at my home machine and it works
but on my work machine it doesn’t and I’m hoping will see the
glaringly obvious configuration problem that can’t see. I can connect
to the database and perform actions just fine.

I’m running Ruby on Windows XP and connecting to SQL Server 2005.

ruby --version
ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287) [i386-mswin32]

gem list --local

The script I’m using to test transactions is:

require ‘active_record’

class TestRollback < ActiveRecord::Base
end

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
:adapter => ‘sqlserver’,
:username => ‘user’,
:password => ‘pass’,
:database => ‘testdb’,
:host => ‘localhost’
)

TestRollback.transaction do
TestRollback.create(:name => ‘Test’)
raise ActiveRecord::Rollback
end

TestRollback.find(:all) # returns [#<TestRollback name: “Test”>]

The only difference between this configuration and my one at home is I
don’t have version 1.15.6 of the activerecord gem installed on my home
machine. However, this script needs to use that version of
activerecord because of some legacy code that I inherited and haven’t
had a chance to rewrite. I’m hoping there’s a way around this without
having to rewrite the code.

Any ideas?

I can’t help you with AR but just making sure we exclude the easy
mistakes which still happen all the time: you have verified that the
record in question is not in the table before the TX starts, did you?

Kind regards
