File_column plugin. Storing files outside RAILS_ROOT

I am trying to configure file_column plugin so that it stores the images
in a directory completely outside of RAILS_ROOT.
I have no problems in storing the files by setting :root_path option.
But I can’t get to display these images using ‘url_for_file_column’.
What I get instead of the image is simply the filename.
Is this a bug in the plugin or am I not using it properly?

Thanks in advance,

file_column developer (Sebastian K. -

general Rails questions.
