Test raise an error with GZip middleware

With Gzip middleware and when running a simple view test like this :

def test_02_auth_non_requis(self):
    self.client.login(username='user1', password='pass1')
    response = self.client.get('/')
    self.assertEqual(response.status_code, 200)

It raises an

AttributeError: 'FakePayload' object has no attribute 'readline'

Here is the stack :

ERROR: test_02_auth_non_requis (****.auth.tests.LoginViewTestCase)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "****/auth/", line 20, in test_02_auth_non_requis
    response = self.client.get('/')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/test/", line 439, in get
    response = super(Client, self).get(path, data=data, **extra)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/test/", line 241, in get
    return self.request(**r)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/core/handlers/", line 178, in get_response
    response = middleware_method(request, response)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/middleware/", line 16, in process_response
    if response.status_code != 200 or len(response.content) < 200:
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/http/", line 601, in _get_content
    return smart_str(''.join(self._container), self._charset)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/http/", line 309, in xreadlines
    buf = self.readline()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/http/", line 305, in readline
    return self._stream.readline(*args, **kwargs)
AttributeError: 'FakePayload' object has no attribute 'readline'

All is fine without the Gzip middleware in test environnement or when running django server. So I have to overwrite installed middleware only for tests.

I'm trying hard to reproduce your problem in a test. However, I don't get how the FakePayload of the get request is suddenly the content of the response. I think that only another middleware or the view code can explain that.

Ok, I reviewed my code, and actually there was an error on the instantiation of an HttpResponse (with the request as the first argument).

I spent an hour on this stupid mistake (shame).

So I close this ticket, our good 'GZip middleware' is not to blame...

Sorry for the wrong ticket, and thank you 'claudep' for your time.
