The script prefix for django.core.urlresolvers doesn't get set to anything when being called through manage.py, because of course it doesn't know what that value should be. This is a problem if you're rendering views (or otherwise reversing urls) from a manage.py command (as one of my sites does to send emails).
This is solvable by calling set_script_prefix from settings.py, but that feels kind of dirty since it's then about to be rewritten in the WSGI handler.
I don't know what a good solution to this would be. Perhaps it would be nice to be able to set a global default script path somewhere that would then get incorporated into the default values of things like LOGIN_URL.
Maybe just a note in the documentation would be good. It took me a while to figure out, because I haven't been able to find anything else about this online. (I guess that non-/ script paths are uncommon and reversing urls from manage.py is also uncommon, so both together are very uncommon.)
