Ruport issue

I’ve been playing with Ruport, and just wanted to run this past the
group to see if anyone else has come across it.

The Ruport Book [1] give this example when it’s explaining about using
acts_as_reportable to interrogate active record objects:

puts Book.report_table(:all, :only => :title, :include => { :author => { :only
=> :name } })
±---------------------------------------------------+
| title | author.name |
±---------------------------------------------------+
| Why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby | _why |
| Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said | Philip K. Dick |
| Farenheit 451 | Ray Bradbury |
| Gravity’s Rainbow | Thomas Pynchon |
±---------------------------------------------------+

I had an issue with it blowing up because it couldn’t map the symbols
in “only”, so I wrapped them in square-brackets, but my result looks
like this:

puts Book.report_table(:all, :only => [:title], :include => { :author => {
:only => [:name] } })
±---------------------------------------------------+
| name | title | author.name |
±---------------------------------------------------+
| | Why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby | _why |
| | Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said | Philip K. Dick |
| | Farenheit 451 | Ray Bradbury |
| | Gravity’s Rainbow | Thomas Pynchon |
±---------------------------------------------------+

Any idea why I might be getting the extra “name” column? (if I remove
the :include condition, both the name columns go from the results)

One horrid caveat… I’m working on this in a Rails 2.1.1 app… and
no, they won’t upgrade … :-/
