Grails 1.3.6 Bug in jquery Tag: Page Reqeuest Instead of AJAX Call

There is a bug in Grails 1.3.6 that prevents (at least) the remoteLink to work correctly. Instead of calling the specified controller closure as an AJAX call, a normal page request is conducted resulting in a futile attempt to display a page on the part of the server.

Downloading the latest Grails 1.3.7-SNAPSHOT release solved the problem for me.
