Description (last modified by Alex)

Let testfield be models.CharField

>>> TestModel.objects.filter(testfield__in='')
>>> TestModel.objects.filter(testfield__in=())
>>> TestModel.objects.filter(testfield__in=()).delete()

>>> TestModel.objects.filter(testfield__in='non-existent-entry').update(testfield='test')
>>> TestModel.objects.filter(testfield__in='').update(testfield='test')

as well as

>>> TestModel.objects.filter(testfield__in=()).update(testfield='test')

causes following trackback:

'NoneType' object has no attribute 'rowcount'
File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\django\db\models\" in update
  448.         rows = query.execute_sql(None)
File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\django\db\models\sql\" in execute_sql
  120.         rows = cursor.rowcount

I've created a patch over r9904 to fix this issue.

If someone needs a quick fix without patching django, here's an ugly workaround:

except AttributeError, e:
    if not e.message.find('rowcount') > 0:

Which database backend has this problem? It might be caused by a bug in the DB API wrapper, since the rowcount attribute is meant to exist always (per PEP 249). At a minimum, I'd like to comment what bug we're working around (if it's something current), but also we should consider reporting upstream.

I've got this error with MySQL (mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.51a, for debian-linux-gnu (i486) using readline 5.2)

The database gets the update but the exception is raised.
