The APPEND_SLASH setting is disabled in DEBUG mode.

However, this feature is not documented. I spent a few minutes asking on IRC, and then eventually figuring it out myself. No one else should spend this time. :)

APPEND_SLASH happens regardless of the value of DEBUG. There is a special error case that we look at -- when DEBUG is True, if and only if you do an HTTP POST to a URL that should have a trailing slash but doesn't, we raise an exception warning you that doing this will discard the POST data. But if you look at the actual code in Django you'll see quite clearly that DEBUG does not affect whether the redirect is issued.
