Globalize doesn't work: HELP ME PLEASE...

Hi to all,

seems that Globalize creates wrong sql statements on dynamic finders on
translated columns (find_by_{attribute}) when locale is not en-US.

Globalize Plugin (for_1_2) installed on vendor/plugins under application
root
Rails 1.2.3
Ruby 1.8.6
Mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.37, for redhat-linux-gnu (i686) using
readline 5.0
Fedora Core 7

Example:

Migration / Table:

db/migrate/001_test1.rb
class Test1 < ActiveRecord::Migration
  def self.up
    create_table(:test1s, :options => 'DEFAULT CHARSET=UTF8') do |t|
      t.column :name, :string, :limit => 100, :null => false
      t.column :description, :string, :limit => 100, :null => false
      t.column :created_at, :datetime, :null => false
      t.column :updated_at, :datetime, :null => false
    end
  end
  def self.down
    drop_table :test1s
  end
end

Model:
app/models/test1.rb
class Test1 < ActiveRecord::Base
  translates :description
  validates_presence_of :name, :description
  validates_uniqueness_of :name, :description
end

Configuration:
config/environment.rb

# And now this not works because the locale is "it-IT" WHY ???

I think this is a Globalize bug but I'm not 100% sure...

Thanks in advance to everyone...
