ActiveRecord Error: Where clause hash conditions with table prefix

Hi everyone,

Before submitting and issue in rails github I’m asking if this is a normal behaviour in rails activerecord.

Without table prefix in comments table the following code prints the correct SQL Syntax:

Post.distinct.joins(:comments).where(comments: { user: current_user }).to_sql
SELECT DISTINCT posts.*
FROM
posts INNER JOIN comments
ON comments.post_id = posts.id
WHERE
comments.user_id = 1

``

With table prefix in comments table the following code prints the wrong SQL Syntax:

Post.distinct.joins(:comments).where(prefix_comments: { user: current_user }).to_sql
SELECT DISTINCT posts.*
FROM
posts INNER JOIN prefix_comments
ON prefix_comments.post_id = posts.id
WHERE
prefix_comments.user = 1

``

It seems that when using table prefixes rails does not convert the hash condition for the model user to the correct column user_id and of course throws an error.

In rails doc it says that:

author = Author.find(1
)
# The following queries will be equivalent:
Post.where(author: author)
Post.where(author_id: author)

And its going to get even worst for polymorphic tables.

Is this excepted or is this a bug in rails and I should open an issue for that?
