Text_area empty_clob()

Anyone know why my text_area field is being prefilled with
“empty_clob()” instead of simply being empty like I would
expect? I’m using Oracle 10g so I suspect it’s coming from
the oci8 driver somehow?

Here’s the code:

<% form_for :user do |f| -%>
<%= f.text_area :notes, :rows => 2, :cols => 32 %>
<% end -%>

It should be just an empty text area ready for data to be
input.

In my migration I’m making the field a text field:

t.column :notes, :text

I tried adding :default => ‘’ but that didn’t help.

The model for this is still empty at this point.

Thanks,

I figured this out, sort of.

Instead of :text I’m using :string, :limit 4000.

Anybody have an actual solution instead of a work around? Thanks!
