"You are being redirected" message - please help!

Hi -

I've inherited some old code that I'm must get working with Rails 2.3.2 as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the previous developer didn't take much regard to the documentation surrounding render_component (and how it really shouldn't be used), and I'm forced to either completely rewrite a large portion of code (which I would rather not do, since I'm under a tight time constraint) or try to get it to work right now to buy me some time to rewrite it.

Here's the issue I'm having. After upgrading to Rails 2.3.2, I installed the render_component plugin as that functionality has been (wisely) removed from Rails. It seems to be working as expected except for the issue I'm having: Upon rendering a component which contains a redirect_to action, I am directed to a plain white page that says "You are being redirected." with a link to the destination URL.

The destination URL in the link is correct, and everything works well once I click the link, but it appears EVERY time I try to perform this action.

There is no error showing up in the log, which is making this really baffling to me. I am running in development mode, using "script/ server". To see what was going on, after the render_component call, I print out the "headers" hash, and it looks as follows:

--- !map:Rack::Utils::HeaderHash P3P: CP="IDC DSP COR ADM DEVi TAIi PSA PSD IVAi IVDi CONi HIS OUR IND CNT" X-Runtime: "91" Location: http://localhost:3000/DEST_URL Cache-Control: no-cache

I've been working on this on-and-off with absolutely no luck, and it's getting pretty frustrating.

Please, I would appreciate any ideas, tips, advice, or (hopefully) solutions. I thank you in advance for anything you can contribute.
