While setting up a new project with Rails 1.2.3 I ran across a weird issue in my tests. Somewhere from the CGI class (belonging to Ruby’s core lib and extended by Rails) a nil object was used and threw an error. Turns out this was introduced in 1.2.2 with a fix that was supposed to improve CGI handling on Windows.
Sorry I don’t have a fancy SVN set up for your plugin-script-using pleasure, but this is a tiny fix anyway.
Though this was a rather annoying bug the fix emphasizes the beauty of Rails and Ruby: It’s easy to extend and even to fix.
