Thanks. I'm not as familiar with the interaction of DBIx::Class and 
Catalyst::Model::* as you are (obviously, I didn't write 'em :) but from 


I find:


     Arguments: $result_class?
     Return Value: $result_class

     An accessor for the class to use when creating row objects. 
     to result_source->result_class - which in most cases is the name of
     the "table" class.

This seems to be the right behaviour to me. Can you summarise why it is 
not ?

Yet over here:


I find:


     Shortcut for ->schema->class

So would the original be better written as:

$c->model('DBIC::UsedPassword')->class->create_limited(); # ?

If it's not this then the docs are really confusing and I'd really 
appreciate it if you could provide the correct usage or approach for 
this situation.

Many thanks,
