OK, A while back (pre 1.2, if I remember correctly), putting a slash
in front of a controller name then using link_to would cause any
recalled parameters to be ignored, e.g. On a page with a url of /
articles/edit/1?test=1, the following code would produce a link to /
link_to "Edit", :controller=>"/articles", :action=>"edit"
This appears to be broken after 1.2, and the following bug report has
been closed with "invalid":
Does anyone know if this is the new intended functionality, and if so,
is there another way of producing the depreciated effect?
