save method not updating in rails 2.0.1

I recently just updated to rails 2.0.1, and since all my .save methods
dont seem to work, as if they are just skipped.

no errors are outputed, and no update sql statements are showing up in
log file.

sample code im using...

def mark_answer
    if(params[:id])
      question = @current_user.questions.find(params[:id])

      if(question)
        question.question_answer_id = params[:answer_id]
        question.save

        notification = UserNotification.new(:user_id =>
question.question_answer.user.id)
        notification.body = @current_user.login + " has marked your
answer as the solution "
        notification.save

      end

      redirect_to :action => 'show', :id => params[:id]
    else
      redirect_to "/404.html"
    end
  end

A new notification gets updated to DB, but nothing question isnt
updated.

Any ideas?

Try changing the save to save!. It should throw an exception about why
it can't save
