skip_before_filter :verify_authenticity_token make session data not accessible.

Hi all,

I'm stucked in following situation: I implemented image upload feature using swfupload. The submission from swfupload cause exception ActionController::InvalidAuthenticityToken (rails 2.2) - understandable because swfupload doesn't send valid token. I try to temporarily turn off the checking in the controller by using "skip_before_filter :verify_authenticity_token", but strange thing happen: session data is not accessible - for example get current_user become nil, or login_required halt.

Has anyone experienced this? Could someone tell what did I do wrong?

Thanks - Chuong
