Flash not being cleared after filter returns false

I’ve got a strange situation with filters and flashes. I set up a
filter like this:

def set_flash
flash[:error] = ‘hi joe’
redirect_to :action => ‘index2’
return false

It redirects to index2 with the flash set appropriately. I then
reload the page and the flash is still there. I reload once again and
the flash goes away.

If I remove the “return false” above, the flash goes away on the first

Basically, it seems that putting “return false” in a filter is causing
any flashes set by that filter to survive for an additional iteration.

Unfortunately, I really need the return false: I’ve got a whole series
of filters and need to bypass running the later ones.

Does anyone have any ideas about this?
