I upgraded our company redmine from 0.8.6 to 0.9.1 and then to 0.9.2

When I tried to run some of saved queries I got internal error page. After some investigation I found that only queries filtering with custom fields failed.

Here redmine log:

  Parameters: {"project_id"=>"telemessage", "action"=>"index", "controller"=>"issues", "query_id"=>"43"}

Can not reproduce. And I don't see how you can get this ArgumentError since #sql_for_field actually accepts 6 arguments.
Please retry with a fresh Redmine 0.9.2 code:

Thx, Jean-Philippe,

I install fresh copy and everything was OK. I began to install plug-ins one by one and found that after installing last version of question plug-in caused problems

So, next time I need to be careful with plug-ins after upgrade.

Again, thx
Redmine is great tool.

Hi Jean-Philippe, Mikhail,

I have encountered the same problem with Redmine version 1.0.1 and the questions plugin v0.3. With a bit of luck, I've solved the bug and then understood the mystery: the questions plugin uses an alias that replaces the original sql_for_field with a wrapper function whose prototype has 5 parameters.

This is the file:


And here is the alias:

alias_method :sql_for_field_before_question, :sql_for_field
alias_method :sql_for_field, :question_sql_for_field

The fix - for me - was to correct the prototype of the sql_for_field_before_question wrapper as in the following patch:
