This is fixed in Django 1.5. See also #20036.

Requesting to re-open. I currently have projects that use Django 1.4. Is there any way that we can merge my changes into the stable/1.4.x branch?

No, bug fixes are not back ported that far, even for LTS releases. Only security patches. See the support life cycle docs - https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/internals/release-process/#supported-versions

This is unfortunate. I see several commits and pull requests merged this month that are unrelated to security in any way. This is an actual bug that is affecting developers.

Er, there are no commits on stable/1.4 this month, and all the commits made in September are relating to security fixes and releases. As Claude stated, this is fixed in 1.5. It is important that old versions have as few changes as possible so as not to break running applications. If it is causing significant pain, I suggest updating the projects to 1.5.

Understood. I can update my requirements to use my fork instead; however, I thought the community may benefit from the fix I proposed.
