Rails 2.3.0 - ActionController::AbstractRequest not being loaded

Hi,

I got a plugin that extends ActionController::AbstractRequest. After
updating Rails from 2.2.2 to 2.3.0 I'm getting the following error:

'load_missing_constant': uninitialized constant
ActionController::AbstractRequest (NameError)

I've already seen people having similar problems with i.e. TMail and
Sweeper. I guess that some kind of lazy loading mechanism has been
introduced, but how to fix this problem?

Cheers,
Szymek

There's also the fact that ActionController::AbstractRequest no
longer exists.

I'm also having the same issue.

What are the options for refactoring existing code? What has replaced
AbstractRequest? or is it now a Gem?

I seem to recall it's just ActionController::Request now (which
inherits from Rack::Request). Exactly what you need to change probably
depends on what you were doing.

I am also having issues with this in trying to use webrat, is there a
way of aliasing the old name or something like that to have backwards
compatibility ?
