Tutorial 4 uses incorrect variable

I could also be doing something wrong here, but it looks like a line in the section where you create generic views is incorrect. Here's the current line:

(r'^(?P<poll_id>\d+)/vote/$', ''),

It seems to me that the poll_id should have been changed to object_id. I'm brand new to Python (and Django), so I'm not certain that's the complete solution, but it seemed to fix the generic views problems I had. (Also, sorry I didn't attach a patch even though it seems simple to me; very overwhelmed first-timer here.)

If this is a duplicate, should the documentation make this more explicit? When you copy over the new views and change the IDs to object-related names for the generic view, you do get the type error described in #7253. Clearer documentation (or perhaps a tarball with the final code for comparison) would do much to help, especially for a beginner's tutorial.
