In my console, I see the following error each time an exception gets raised in my application:

Could not log "process_action.action_controller" event. ArgumentError: wrong number of arguments (1 for 0)

The message originates from the log_subscriber.rb source file:

def call(message, *args)
  return unless logger

  method = message.split('.').first
    send(method,, *args))
  rescue Exception => e
    logger.error "Could not log #{message.inspect} event. #{e.class}: #{e.message}"

I am starting with a freshly generated Rails 3.2 application. I haven't changed any logger settings.

Could you provide an example application?

I didn't could reproduce it.

ok thanks—

I'm having trouble reproducing outside my app. I'll reopen if I can track this down to a legit problem.

Seeing this in our app as well. Will comment again if I figure out why.

The problem is with will_paginate. It's fixed in this fork: (this commit: calvincorreli/will_paginate@87c7955)

Pull request here: mislav/will_paginate#215

@henrik Thanks for reporting your findings. I will follow the will_paginate pull request.
