There is something fishy going in your setup? Checkout this file:


It has the line "require 'class_helpers'", so I am surprised to see
that despite using 1.0.1 tag, you didn't had that line.
Also, there could be a possibility that you have a file with same name
elsewhere in your load_path. Can you check and tell me, if the
class_helpers file I mentioned is actually being loaded or not?

Let them talk of their oriental summer climes of everlasting
conservatories; give me the privilege of making my own summer with my
own coals.
