python-django 1.3-2ubuntu1.1 is incompatible with Psycopg2 2.4.2-1
When using the default versions of python-django and python-psycopg2 that ship with Oneiric, I am unable to run any unit tests for any Django application, due to upstream issue 16250:
As discussed in the Django ticket, Django 1.3 is incompatible with Psycopg2 versions after 2.4.1 due to changes in the Psycopg2 library. The Django developers have committed a fix for this, however they have stated they will not be backporting the fix to the 1.3.x branch.
I am filing this bug against the python-django package since this seems to be a Django issue, however one resolution might be to downgrade the version of python-psycopg2 that ships with Oneiric. Alternatively, a fix for Ubuntu's shipping version of Django may need to be created. The patch from Django issue 16250 does not apply cleanly to the python-django 1.3-2ubuntu1.1 sources.
