Either I have missed something completely or the following regular expressions are out of order. At least if I turn them around so the more specific turns up at the top the "fall through" and thereby the logic works properly for me. several places

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^polls/$', 'mysite.polls.views.index'),
    (r'^polls/(?P<poll_id>\d+)/$', 'mysite.polls.views.detail'),
    (r'^polls/(?P<poll_id>\d+)/results/$', 'mysite.polls.views.results'),
    (r'^polls/(?P<poll_id>\d+)/vote/$', ''),

It does not matter what order they are in, since the '$' at the end matches the end of the string, so there is no need for 'fall through' - "polls/123/", for example, will match only the second pattern.
