django.test.Client response has wrong request type

Currently the django.test.Client gives out response objects that has request attribute, but the attribute is not HttpRequest, it is dict.

I'm trying to write tests for requests object (not the request data dict), I need for instance HttpRequest.get_full_path(). For my disappointment I noticed that Client can create the request objects but it truncates them to dicts at one point and places this to response.request.

I do not know what is wanted behavior but I'm now looking for a way to initialize HttpRequest manually for these tests, which probably is a better idea for this specific case anyway.

As you wrote initializing the request object directly is probably better.

This behavior (storing the data, not the object) is documented, I'm closing the ticket as invalid because of that:
