Rails Working Directory?

    It seems like the rails working directory is not properly set to the VH_ROOT, which is affecting some of the relative paths I use in my Rails app.

    The working directory seems to be set to where the ruby executable resides, /usr/local/bin in my case. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

    Yes, it is a bug in current ruby-lsapi. Will be address in next release.

    Which directory should be set as CWD in Rails? $RAILS_ROOT/public or something else?

    It should be $RAILS_ROOT. This issue is somewhat critical for me, any estimate for the bugfix release or ideas for a temporary workaround?

    The fix actually turn out to be very simple. :)
    Dir.chdir( ENV['RAILS_ROOT'] )
    at the beginning of RailsRunner.rb, before the first "require ..."

    Please let me know it fixes your problem or not.
