redirect returning wrong url when running in subdirectory #1394

I have the following piece of code in my routes.rb file:

match 'findTicket' => redirect{|p,r| "/tickets/#{r.query_parameters[:id]}"}, :as => :find_ticket

Using rails 3.1.0.rc1 this generate paths of the form "/tickets/:id". This is not correct when the application is running in a subdirectory.

For example, using Apache and Passenger, with RackBaseURI set to '/APPNAME', the URLs generated by the redirect should be prefixed by '/APPNAME' -- ie '/APPNAME/tickets/:id'.

Unfortunately, redirect() is working somewhat like a dumb redirector. It will redirect you to your given location without lookup for the base URI or anything. You'll have to correct the target redirect path and adding the value of RackBaseURI by yourself.

my workaround for this issue for anyone interested is to stick a global in the environment.rb file.
if Rails.env.production?

then in the routes simply pop the global in front of the link. Doing it this way allows for it to work on both prod and dev only adding the uri when needed.
