When using date based generic views with SQLite, the following error occurrs:
Exception Type: ValueError
Exception Value: need more than 1 value to unpack
Exception Location: /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/core/db/typecasts.py in typecast_timestamp, line 22
It seems the typecast for date assumes date+time, whereas the DateField() comes back with only a date.
I have worked around this problem using the following patch:
