Hey Micah,

Check out http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=6903&group_id=797&atid=3149
which is a bug report I filed for the same issue.

Basically in the mean time, just do
render :partial => "controller_name/partial_name"

So like if the partial is named "person" and it's under the "people"
views dir, it'd be
render :partial => "people/person"

That'll work until we get it fixed in the plugin.
