Flash not cleared with ActiveRecord session store

Cheers,

I’ve stumbled over a bug with 1.0 and ActiveRecord store for session
while migrating from pstore sessions.

I created the table with rake create_sessions_table and set
config.action_controller.session_store = :active_record_store in
environment.rb.

Everything runs fine except that the flash messages will not be cleared.
I get the same message everytime on everypage I surf. E.g. if the
message is set through an update action I will see it from now on
forever (or until the controler sets a new one, than this one will get
displayed on every page).

When I change back to pstore (through editing environment.rb),
everything works fine again.

I confirmed this behaviour with my project on FreeBSD 6.0 and MacOSX
10.4 with MySQL 4/5.

Anybody also seeing this or not having trouble with flash and
ActiveRecord session store?

I have the login_engine installed and therefore have to display my flash
messages like this:

<% for name in [:notice, :warning, :message] %>
<% if flash[name] %>
<%= “<div id=“flash” class=“flash” >#{flash[name]}” %>
<% end %>
<% end %>

I narrowed it down to render_component calls in the layout:

<%= render_component(:controller => “region”, :action => “stats”)%>

I use this for my sidebar and if I comment this out, everything is fine
again.

Disabling sessions in the called controller does not help.

With pstore sessions, everything is fine, this problem exists only with
ActiveRecord store.

This bug is also apparent in a new project.

Just create a new rails project and insert a render_component call in
your layout. When you use ActiveRecord Session Store, the flash value
will never be cleared.
