contrib.auth tests fail if the app provides templates

python-django (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: python-django


Impact: If you write a django project that uses contrib.auth and provides templates for those views, then your tests cannot pass.
Development branch: the bug was fixed when we got 1.2, as this was already found and fixed upstream.
Patch: taken from upstream, see below
Test Case:
  bzr branch lp:~james-w/+junk/django-test
  cd django-test
  python dashboard_server/ test
  - This should give 6 errors
  - Install the updated package
  python dashboard_server/ test
  - Should give 0 errors
Regression Potential: Low as in test code only, and a blessed upstream fix that is verified to work.

This works for me, thanks, at least at fixing this particular bug. I will ask some of
my colleagues to test as well.

A pending security upload is going to supersede the package in lucid-proposed.
