undefined method `includes_values' for :conditions:Symbol

Rails 3 / Ruby 1.9.2

Over the weekend I saw the "undefined method `includes_values' for :conditions:Symbol" error for the 1st time while working with AAF.


Anyway, i fixed the query and moved on.

Today I hit the error again but I do not have any include queries. It seems that rails is generating it.

I have a cart that has many cart_items and a cart item belongs to a domain.

When I try to access the domain in my cart view I get the 'includes_values' error on this item (item.domain.id)

<% @cart.cart_items.each{|item| %>       <li id="cart_domain_id_<%=item.domain.id%>" class="cart-item">

Now if I access the domain object in the controller it works fine

    for item in @cart.cart_items       item.domain.name #TODO total hack to avoid undefined method `includes_values' for :conditions:Symbol     end

Obviously I don't want to do this but it fixes the problem. Has anyone else run into this, usually I figure out my own problem at this point but I'm still stumped. :-\

Thanks in advance for any pointers Tony
