I and some collegues always refer to http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.1/ref/forms/validation/#cleaning-and-validating-fields-that-depend-on-each-other to check how to do custom validation, I've been looking for a while before finding that I need to call the parent clean method for modelForm (to avoid postgres to raise the unique constraint error).
I found later that it was written in ModelForm documentation. Just a warning with a link to this chapter would be great.
