another suggestion... you could take the code from


and paste it into a file called (say) routes.rake in your lib/tasks  
directory then run rake routes to get a listing of all the routes and  
their mappings in your terminal window.  This will show you how the  
controllers, actions and parameters are mapped to urls and might help  
you work out what's going on.
