Not sure if this is not a duplicate, but I could't find it reported yet.

When you do create a document, and you use custom categories for them, always the first category is saved for the document. When you update it later, it works normally.

I am experiencing this on ChiliProject, it's possible that in newer version it is already fixed?

Set default category_id instead of the object #1087

Rails 2.3 still has issues with synchronizing the association_id
and association attributes of an object. That means, if you set the
association with an object first and then just set the id afterwards, the object wins and the setting of the id gets lost.

This is not an issue in Rails >= 3.1 anymore.

Just confirmed this.

It happens when there is a default value selected for the enum.

This should be fixed in 7a4b664 for Rails 2.3. With Rails 3, it should have worked right away. Time we updated...
