Rails 2.02 collection_select problem passing option and html_option hashes

Running into a strange issue and was wondering if others are
experiencing it with the latest rails release.

When using the collection_select helper and passing in a hash for the
options or html_options params I consistently get the following error:
syntax error, unexpected '}', expecting ')'

Not using a hash to pass the params works fine (for options at least,
html_options doesn't seem to).

Let's assume the following:
Object to update: @product
Methods to update: category_id
Collection to pick from: @categories
Category value field: id
Category text field: name

So this works and will give us the first option "Please select" in the
drop down (due to prompt):
collection_select( :product, :category_id,
@categories, :id, :name, :prompt => true )

However, changing the options param to a hash like this:
collection_select( :product, :category_id, @categories, :id, :name,
{:prompt => true} )

Breaks the form producing this error.
syntax error, unexpected '}', expecting ')'

The following attempts break it too:
collection_select( :product, :category_id, @categories, :id, :name,
{} )
collection_select( :product, :category_id, @categories, :id, :name,
{}, {} )
collection_select( :product, :category_id, @categories, :id, :name,
{}, {:onchange => "alert('hi')"} )

Out of ideas.

I'm sure this will be of no use to you, but I just stuck:

    <%= collection_select :user, :articles, @articles, :id,
                          :title, {:prompt => true},
                          {:onchange => "alert('hi')"} %>

into one of my views and it worked just fine, popup alert and all.

Very strange. Ok thanks. You're on the latest rails release or on
edge? Maybe it's a haml problem for me then.

Nevermind. I see you're on 2.02 same as me. Ok thanks for the update.
Gotta be something else.
