In RegexField, the error_message argument is evaluated instead of tested for None.

If USE_I18N is enabled and RegexField(error_message=_(...)) appears in any app's _ _init_, it leads to a traceback.

(project: myproj, application: myapp)
$ python syncdb

  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/forms/", line 400, in __init__
    if error_message:
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/utils/", line 188, in __wrapper__
    res = self.__func(*self.__args, **self.__kw)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 62, in ugettext
    return real_ugettext(message)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 290, in ugettext
    return do_translate(message, 'ugettext')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 280, in do_translate
    _default = translation(settings.LANGUAGE_CODE)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 198, in translation
    default_translation = _fetch(settings.LANGUAGE_CODE)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/utils/translation/", line 181, in _fetch
    app = getattr(__import__(appname[:p], {}, {}, [appname[p+1:]]), appname[p+1:])
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'myapp'

Attached patch solves the problem.

I cannot reproduce this problem - it looks like it may have been inadvertently fixed by the changes from [10088], when import_module was introduced.

If this is still posing problems for you, please reopen with a complete set of reproduction notes.
