In general, we count on syncdb to create any tables that need to be created, and not to touch ones that already exist. Intermediary tables needed by M2M relations fall through the cracks -- presumably because they don't have separate models explicitly declared . Unless I'm missing some risk, these tables should be created by syncdb.

This looks to have been fixed since being filed. If you add a new model to an application and that new model contains a ManyToManyField, we correctly create the intermediate table. The syncdb command will not create the intermediate table if you add a new field to an existing model, but that is because it does not handle model changes -- only creating new models (we don't include the new field either in that case).
