I have a model that does an 'include' of a module defined in the lib
directory. The module, in turn, uses 'require' to load a class defined
in the system load path. Running the application in development mode,
the initial request goes through successfully. However, the second
time around, I get a NameError resulting from "uninitialized
constant", with the constant in question being a class that is defined
in the script that is 'require'd in the lib module. In brief it looks
On the second request, the class defined in extension/clazz cannot be
found, resulting in the NameError. However, if I add "require
'extension/clazz'" into the model, just before the 'include', it works
such that every request is successful. Likewise, if I run the
applicaiton in production mode, it works every time.
Is this expected behavior, or is this a bug in Rails?
