:page parameter problem in the method paginate #13

The paginate method defaults to 1 the parameter :page if this one is false or nil. This parameter can also be an empty string. It could be good to defaults :page to 1 also in this case. We encountered this problem when our site is crawled by google bots.

Here is my patch to this bug

I've heard about this issue, but don't consider it a problem. Newer Rails apps automatically respond to WillPaginate::InvalidPage issues being raised with a normal 404 response. If spiders feel the need of mangling get params and making up new URLs, they should get 404s, not get treated nicely.
