Year too big to marshal: 1865 UTC

Hello there,
I have an issue when putting an ActiveRecord model into the Rails.cache.
The issue seems to be caused by the published_on column, which is a
MySQL
datetime column and supports dates between ‘1000-01-01 00:00:00’ and
‘9999-12-31 23:59:59’. However Rails appears to load this into a class
which can’t support a similar range of dates:

p = Product.find_by_gtin(“9781418133399”)
p.published_on
=> Sun, 01 Jan 1899 00:00:00 EST +10:00

Rails.cache.write(“test”, p)
ArgumentError: year too big to marshal: 1898 UTC

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Perhaps not helpful, but no issue here ( also with Rails 3.2.2,
MySQL 5.5.19, cache_store => :file_store ) –

1.9.2-p290 :002 > oldtimes = Date.new(1899, 1, 1)
=> Sun, 01 Jan 1899
… snip thumb-fingered-ness
1.9.2-p290 :004 > oldtimes.to_datetime
=> Sun, 01 Jan 1899 00:00:00 +0000
1.9.2-p290 :005 > Rails.cache.write(“oldtimes”, oldtimes)
=> true
1.9.2-p290 :006 > Rails.cache.read(“oldtimes”)
=> Sun, 01 Jan 1899
1.9.2-p290 :007 > user = User.last

1.9.2-p290 :009 > user.invitation_sent_at= oldtimes

The issue is with pushing an ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone into the cache,
rather than a Date or DateTime in your example. When you load the user
from the, is the invitation_sent_at an ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone? And
if it is, can you put the user in the cache?

Ah, interesting –

1.9.2-p290 :008 > user.invitation_sent_at.class
=> ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone

1.9.2-p290 :010 > Rails.cache.write(“user_invitation_sent_at”,
user.invitation_sent_at)

`_dump’

mmmm…
