Tests of auth app are breaking if my AUTH_USER_MODEL is 'auth.CustomUser'

I have an auth app of my own and my custom user model is also called 'auth.CustomUser'. There's a conflict with the fixture 'contrib/auth/fixtures/custom_user.json'.

The test command line is:
$ ./ test auth
Creating test database for alias 'default'...
ERROR: test_confirm_valid_custom_user (django.contrib.auth.tests.views.CustomUserPasswordResetTest)

App names (specifically, the last element of the dotted path) must be unique. If you're using 'django.contrib.auth', you can't name your app 'whatever.auth'.
