Union across associations resets foreign keys

Reported by Bernerd Schaefer | January 10th, 2011 @ 11:15 AM

Given the following models:

    class Activity
      belongs_to :post, required: false
      belongs_to :user, required: false

    class Post
      belongs_to :user
      has n, :activities

    class User
      has n, :posts
      has n, :activities

      def all_activities
        activities | posts.activities

When User#all_activities is called, the foreign keys of post activities are re-bound to the User model:

    user = User.create

    post = Post.create(user: user)

    user_activity, post_activity = user.all_activities

    assert_equal user.id, user_activity.user_id
    assert_equal nil, user_activity.post_id

    assert_equal post.id, post_activity.post_id
    assert_equal nil, post_activity.user_id
    # FAIL:
    #   <nil> expected but was <1>
    #   post_activity.dirty_attributes # => {:user_id => 1}
