url_for in a ActionMailer::Base decendent


  I am not getting to use url helpers in a ActionMailer::Base decendent class.
  I have this:

  class Notifier < ActionMailer::Base
  require 'action_view/helpers/url_helper.rb'

  When I try to call url_for or link_to I get a stack overflow exception:

  stack level too deep

  Looking at the stack tace I realized that url_for and send are
called several times in url_helper.

  Anyone knows what could this be?


Could it be you have overridden the parent constructor? If so call it
explicitly that should work. I'm no ruby expert. This is just
something that sounds common to me as an OO programmer. Anybody else
have a better solution perhaps?
