Recursion error when deleting model object through admin

When I try to delete a specific object using the admin interface I get an error:
RuntimeError at /admin/gtd/node/1470/delete/ maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object
It appears to be trying to convert something to unicode but I don't know what. From the Django error message I can see that the object appears as
<Node: [<span style="color: rgba(230, 138, 0, 1.0)"><strong>DFRD</strong></span>] Test todo item>, which doesn't seem to have any weird characters in it. The title is what I expect to be return from
__str__(self) as described below.
If I delete a different object (which has similar HTML markup in it) from the same model it works with no errors. The model in question defines
__str__(self) which returns the value from a models.TextField() attribute wrapped in some HTML (<span style="..."></span>) which is passed through mark_safe() before being returned. The model is decorated with
@python_2_unicode_compatible. Following the python3 migration guide, I added
from __future__ import unicode_literals at the top of my models.py and removed
__unicode__(self) but no difference.
The stacktrace doesn't seem to go through my code anywhere.
I git-pulled the latest changes to stable/1.5.x from github and reinstalled Django after removed the previous installation from dist-packages but the problem persists.
I have not tried deleting this object pythonically; I figured I'd keep that object for now in case anyone needs me to reproduce the problem.
