No marshal_dump is defined for class Proc

Hello ~

This problem has me puzzled. When users login to my rails app I have
the
session set up to be stored in the MySQL database for the app.
Intermittently, users will get the following error:

no marshal_dump is defined for class Proc

I have had this happen in Windows running in development mode and on
Linux
running in production. Any ideas or potential pointers would be greatly
appreciated.

Thx,

Ben-

You cannot marshal objects that have procs or lambdas in them. Its a

current limitation of the ruby interpreter. What exactly are you
storing in the session? Whole objects? Or just id’s? SHow me what you
are storing in the session and I can help you figure it out.

Hi Ezra ~

Thx for the tip. I was storing an entire object, but after much
consideration decided it was overkill and a potential security risk to
store
the object in the session. I adjusted my app to only store some key
elements in the session, and voila!

Thx again,

Ben
