This is an issue with Rails 3.2.4 (works fine in Rails 3.2.3)

  1. create a new rails app
rails new rails_3_2_4
cd rails_3_2_4
rails g scaffold foo name:string
rake db:migrate
rails s -e development
  1. go to /foos and create a new Foo record
  2. go back to /foos

The new Foo records is not listed. If you restart the server, it is now listed. But if you create a new Foo record, it is not listed again until you restart the server.

Expected Result:
The new Foo record should be listed.


Could you provide an example application? This behavior is well tested and I don't think that this is a Rails bug.

Agreed seems crazy. Here is the sample app:


@andyvb I've tried your steps and everything works okay with 3.2.4 on my computer


@pixeltrix seems this is the same issue that #6576.


@andyvb @rafaelfranca it's a duplicate of #6576 - the cached Model.all is not been invalidated.


Snap 😄

@pixeltrix, @rafaelfranca thanks guys, I thought I was going crazy. Seems pretty serious.

@pixeltrix pixeltrix Restore behavior of Active Record 3.2.3 scopes
A series of commits relating to preloading and scopes caused a regression.
Cloning the relation calls initialize_copy which resets a number of instance
variables to nil. Without this the scope thinks that it is already loaded
when it is called again.

Fixes #6575, #6576 & #6577
