I have role names in russian, for example:
and after upgrade rails from 2.3.8. to 2.3.11 a became FilterSyntaxError in generators.rb only by AJAX requests here :
code = <<-RUBY
lambda do |controller|
self.instance_eval(code, __FILE__, __LINE__)
raise FilterSyntaxError, code
I realize that this is too old now to be of any use to the OPs, I'm just getting involved so combing the back issues. Nothing for those old versions of Rails is going to be fixed.
