Record is not saved to database

Hi, all!

Maybe a noob question, sorry, but I'm really stuck with this.
I have 2 models with has_many and belongs_to associations.
class Transaction < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :bonuses, :class_name => 'TransactionBonus'
end
class TransactionBonus < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :transaction
end

The problem is that I cannot save TransactionBonus record to the
database - it's simply doesn't do anything!
I have another models in my application, and all of them are saved
just fine
TransactionBonus is the only exception

Table structure matches exactly the model records:
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `transaction_bonuses` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `transaction_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `taken_bonus` float default NULL,
  `collected_bonus` float default NULL,
  `final_sum` float default NULL,
  `created_at` datetime default NULL,
  `updated_at` datetime default NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=1 ;

Here is my irb console output with test records:

transaction=Transaction.find(1)

=> #<Transaction id: 1, card_account_id: 1, created_at:
"2008-09-01 13:48:10", updated_at: "2008-09-01 13:48:10">

transaction.bonuses

=> []

bonus=transaction.bonuses.create(:transaction_id => 1, :final_sum => 99)

=> #<TransactionBonus id: nil, transaction_id: 1, final_sum: 99.0,
created_at: nil, updated_at:

transaction.bonuses

=> [#<TransactionBonus id: nil, transaction_id: 1, final_sum: 99.0,
created_at: nil, updated_at:

]

bonus.save

=> #<Transaction id: 1, card_account_id: 1, created_at:
"2008-09-01 13:48:10", updated_at: "2008-09-01 13:48:10">

bonus

=> #<TransactionBonus id: nil, transaction_id: 1, final_sum: 99.0,
created_at: nil, updated_at:

After that I have tried to initialize TransactionBonus record
directly, but no success:

>> bonus = TransactionBonus.create( :transaction_id => 1 )
=> #<TransactionBonus id: nil, transaction_id: 1, final_sum: nil,
created_at: nil, updated_at: nil>

>> bonus
=> #<TransactionBonus id: nil, transaction_id: 1, final_sum: nil,
created_at: nil, updated_at: nil>

>> bonus.save
=> #<Transaction id: 1, card_holder_id: 0, card_account_id: 1,
created_at: "2008-09-01 13:48:10", updated_at: "2008-09-01
13:48:10">

>> bonus
=> #<TransactionBonus id: nil, transaction_id: 1, final_sum: nil,
created_at: nil, updated_at: nil>

Please, note id: nil for the bonus var, it means that the record is
not saved to the database.

This is really mysterious for me...

Don't call your model transaction - you're overriding some internal
activerecord methods.

Try using create! to see if the problem is with validation or
due to a false-returning pre-save callback.
