problems with scriptaculous..

for some reason, i am having the hardest time with the simplest possible
use of a visual effect..

i have done this a million times, and this is first time i have had this
much trouble.

here's what i am trying to do:

1. set up a div with a link_to_remote that references its containing div
[1].
2. once some backend processing is done, the generated javascript will
remove the div[2].

everything works fine.. the action gets fired off.. everything that
needs to happen happens.

except..

the div does not PUFF go away..

any help would be appreciated..

thanks!

try to:

1. change async mode of ajax to synchronous (to asynchronous:false)

or

2. fire visual_effect from controller (instead of js) via
render :update do |page|
   page.visual_effect :puff,'dom_id'
end
