Bundler.setup(:group) clears previously bundled load paths with no way to re-load them #932

If you call Bundler.setup(:group) then call it again with a different group (e.g. :test), the load path from the first call gets wiped. Since setup() caches what it has previously loaded, calling Bundler.setup(:group) again will have no effect.

Not sure how to set github labels for this but i've tested on 1.0.7 (current stable) and 1.1pre (current master), it's a bug in both versions.

Allow groups to be loaded again if they been cleared

Hey, thanks for reporting this! We wound up unable to use your patch because of another bug that we discovered while applying it. There was not previously a test for the bug we found, so we added tests for both the issue you discovered and the other one that we found while investigating. :)


No problem. Thanks for fixing it.

FWIW, I had trouble figuring out what the expected behavior was when you call Bundler.setup() twice with separate groups. E.g. should both groups get loaded, or is the last call to setup() the groups you should have. Which, based on your fix, it looks like I got it wrong anyway so my patch wouldn't have been what you wanted :)
