HABTM not populating new record creation in Rails 2

Hi!

I'm working on Rails2. And I see that this problem: http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/3692
still exists ...right?

I described my code here: http://railsforum.com/viewtopic.php?id=12004

Maybe under Rails 2 I have to change something in my HABTM ...?

Thx for any help!
