Ruby1.9 and ActiveRecord

I wanted to switch my app from ruby 1.8 to 1.9 but I notice
ar-extensions’ ActiveRecord#import takes longer. The code to demonstrate
it is attached. There is no significant time difference in both
variations in ruby 1.8 (I used fastercsv for 1.8). It looks like 1.9
issue, but first of all I’d appreciate if somebody can confirm this

Thanks in advance.

------ test_ar.rb -----
require ‘ar-extensions’
require ‘csv’

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection :adapter => ‘sqlite3’, :dbfile
=> ‘:memory:’
ActiveRecord::Schema.define do
create_table ‘jobs’ do |t|
t.column :xid, :integer
t.column :user, :string
t.column :time, :time
t.column :duration, :integer
t.column :machine, :string
t.column :command, :string

This one is slow. Notice local variable “job”

job = ActiveRecord::Base do
set_table_name ‘jobs’

This one is fast. Notice constant “Job”

#Job = ActiveRecord::Base do

set_table_name ‘jobs’

#job = Job

data = “data.csv”, :headers => false
job.import %w{ xid user time duration machine command }, data,
:validate => false

Fast one (with constant Job)
