NoMethodError in 1.2RC

I have a model User that belongs_to EmailAddress (I know that seems
backwards, but that's the way it really is). In one of the views, I'm
calling @user.email_address.verified?, where the verified? method is
indeed defined in the EmailAddress class. I've been working on a
checkout of Edge Rails (rev. 5379), where this works, as it does in
1.1.6. When running 1.2RC, it gives a NoMethodError on verified? only
AFTER the first time. So, it works once, but if you refresh the page,
it dies. When I log the methods on the instance, the first time
around, I get:

You can clearly see the verified method there. The very next time
through, I get:

I don't know why, but there it is. Has anyone else seen this?

I am going nuts with this same issue. I just upgraded to 1.2 RC1 as
well.

It works once after restarting Mongrel, but the next request it's my
objects lose their instance methods. I've just begun trying to debug.
Anyone know the fix?

Ok, I've spent all night trying to figure this out but no luck. I don't
even really fully understand what is wrong. My app is broken completely
now because of this. Anyone else having this problem where public
instance methods seem to disappear from your object's scope?

Here is my development.log:

Well, I hope this gets figured out soon. I rolled back to Rails 1.1.6
and everything is working fine again. I added some detail to the ticket
