Documentation (http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/testing/#fixture-loading) does not provide any hints on the mechanism of fixture loading.
For instance, it does not explicitly say that all fixtures from all applications matching the names given in instance's 'fixtures' field are loaded, somewhat similar to template resolution mechanism.
While this behaviour is perfectly inline with django's philosophy, it is worth mentioning this particular issues in the documentation.
