It doesn't look like this issue was ever actually resolved, as the patch supplied in the comments was never actually applied to the source tree. For instance,

class MyTable < ActiveRecord::Base
   set_table_name 'my_view'

MyTable.table_exists? # => false

This is when using PostgreSQL as a backend. I can't find any mention of pg_views anywhere in the source, so I don't think that the patch was ever applied properly.

I've added a test case for this in #1469.
The test does not fail. The issue then appears to have been solved.

After more reflection, I don't think this is really an issue. ActiveRecord manages only tables anyway, not views.
If you need views management in your app, use or make a gem which does that.

@ConradIrwin ConradIrwin Split strictly on MIME boundary lines [Fixes #379]
Some mail generators ignore RFC 2046's "Boundary delimeters must not
appear within the encapsulated material" by using MIME boundaries for
inner parts that contain the MIME boundaries for outer parts.

To parse these emails as the author intended it is necessary to split
encapsulated content only on boundary delimeters that are on their own
line, instead of those that appear with suffixed content.
