I am pretty certain that the change in this branch never got committed
to webrat. The ticket is still open:


dstar opened a ticket which is related, as in it requires that all
urls are fully qualified, I don't believe it has been committed either

I haven't tried out dstar's patch, but I believe we solve the same
problem, we just do it at different points.

Perhaps Bryan or Josh could look at these. In the meantime I have
pushed an updated branch which includes all of webrat 4.1. Hopefully
in the meantime this will solve the issue for you:
