Curious where to fix this bug and perhaps, more importantly, if its considered one at all.
will never finish returning the response. WIth mongrel/etc. it works fine.
This can be a problem for such functions as the in_place_editor when using integer/decimal data types - the response never completes. Again, its only a problem with webrick.
Is this a flaw with webrick (i.e
. it should return the request even if response.body = numeric) or should rails be insuring its sending a string in the response.body. The simple solution is to change
response.body = text
in the render_text function to
response.body = text.to_s.
This would also potentially solve things like: http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/7067
What are the thoughts on resolving this? Or is it a purposeful behavior?
